Heater for a 5 gal?

Hi everyone! I'm getting a 5 gal soon for a betta and some shrimp and need some suggestions on what kind of heater to get. Most of the small tank heaters don't seem to be adjustable and that doesn't sit well with me.

Ok. I was going to suggest a small inline heater if you were considering going with a small canister filter. Unfortunately, most in tank small heaters just do not have adjustable temp control.

You could go with something like this: Freshwater Planted Aquarium Heaters: Hydor Hydrokable & Hydroset Heater & Controller

or more traditional: Aquarium Heaters: Hydor Theo Heater
