Hydor theo 25 watt would work for both tanks, I've used one on a 3g and a 6.5g and it works great, fully submersible and adjustable.

I just listed the heaters I used in my 5g and 2.5g. I could not find hydro locally but Aqueon I could which was good as I got it with an impulse betta buy >.>'' They're so addictive!
As a side note: I noticed when I tried to test the hydro theo in a bucket of water (no circulation) it would not heat well. I had it maxed (I think set at 92F) and thermometers (yes plural) read 74F. BUT Once in a tank with a sponge filter it heated properly and sits at 80F now where I want it. Why was I testing the theo? The heater I was using before it went on the fritz and I found the tank at 92 and 94F before throwing that heater out. Surprisingly the betta in that tank survived just fine.
