Heater for 7.5gal 12" cube tank

I'm starting to notice less and less of my cherry shrimp are breeding and I'm starting to think it may be from lack of a heater. The room they are in averages at 62 F this time of year. I had a heater in before but it was over powered and from an old 20 gallon tank and would heat the tank to 80 when set to the lowest it went. I'm just wondering what is a decent heater for this small of a tank.

I'm wondering if a 25 w theo would be a good heater or if I need a 50w
