I'm using that one from walmart. It's made by MarkeTech. It's 7.5watts and non-thermostatic, which means it pumps in a continuous amount of heat, rather than use a thermostat. So it will bring your tanks water about 5-10 degrees F above room temp. If that ends up over 82F, then you probably don't need a heater anyway since the room is warm enough. If the room temp fluctuates a lot, then you're better off with a small 25 watt thermostatic heater.
