Favorite Nano Heater?

What is your favorite nano heater?
How long have you used this type with success?
Is it adjustable?
What size heater do you use for what size tank? Sometimes 25 wt heaters just don't cut it in tanks up to 5 gallons.
I really like these small cobalt neo therm heaters. They must not touch the substrate, and must be used vertically.
I need one for my riparium though, that I can totally submerse horizontally.

Under substrate heater

For my 2.5g bowl, I use a Fluval bowl heater. It is flat, and comes with a suction cup to attach it to the glass. I put it on the very bottom of my bowl, and added soil and a cap over top. It in not adjustable, but keeps the temperature of the bowl in my cool room at 20 - 24 degrees C. The plants in this bowl are growing very well. The bowl is 55 days old as of Feb 22, 2014. I read in another forum, that I should unplug it when the ambient temperature gets to 22 degrees C, because it may heat the bowl higher than I want. They also make a larger model for tanks up to 5g.

Pet Smart updates their links every once in a while, so it may just take you to the home site, but you can find this small heater there with a little exploring.

Why is the "next" tank, always the most interesting?
