5 gallon aquarium heater

Hey I'm looking to get a heater for my 5.5 gallon aquarium. I'm just wondering what is the best heater I could get. I know people say the eheim jäger are good but they don't have a 25w. It needs to be able to be set to a specific temp as well. Any recommendations? Thanks!

So I was actually wrong because I guess drfostersmith just don't carry the jäger in 25w as the lowest the have is 50w for it. But I looked at kensfish.com and they have a 25w jäger which is adjustable so I'm gonna pick that up!

Not sure about best but I like the aqueon pro. Mine are new so do they last ??? I use them to warm buckets of ro water so the unbreakable part got me, expensive but they work.

Ya I hear good things about the aqueon pro as well. Do they have the ability to set a specific temp?

Check out the Cobalt NeoTherm nano heaters. Not only can you set the temp, but it flashes the current temp of the water. I use one in my 2 gallon nano.

Ya the pro has a dial with temp numbers and a light, the light is green when it's at temp and red when heating or not to temp yet.

Good that the Cobalt has the overheating shut down feature.

The Eheim also has a shut down feature and almost half the price, but the slim line of the Cobalt is good for a nano size tank! Looks like I will be saving up for that one for my Orange Eye Blue Tiger Shrimp!

I took it out of the water a couple inches for the picture's sake. It sits completely underwater...
