Mini heater?

I am getting ready to set up my 1.5 and rescape my 2.5 but I need little heaters. Preferably something that will fit in the filter or will be easily hidden. Any ideas?

I know hagen makes a thin slim heater that is set to around 75degrees, it would fit in a lot of HOB filters

I have several nano tanks that range from 1 to 6 gallons and I have heaters in each one of them. Most of them have either a 7 inch 25 or 50 W Hydor theo heater (from Petsmart) in them. I also use a Visi-Therm Deluxe 50 W that is 7.5 inches long. I am also using a Whisper mini heater (from Walmart) that's only 5 inches tall but it is preset to 78 F.

Here is a link to the Visi-Therm Deluxe page:

I hope all goes well with your nano

The Hydor Mini Aquarium Heater 7.5 Watt, would work nicely for tanks under 5 gallons and would fit very easily in a HOB filter.
