I'm setting up a nano tank and I need a heater suggestion. I'm a little low on funds so I'd like to find a relatively inexpensive heater that I can trust to keep my tank at around 80 degrees. The tank is for a betta and possibly a couple of ghost shrimp. The heater I have now is really unreliable. The temperature is swinging back and forth from 68 to 84 degrees. It got up to 90 at one point before I unplugged it. I don't want to kill my fish.

I should probably mention that the tank is 2.5 gallons but with substrate is really about 2 gallons of water.

I'm going back to the pet store soon so I will definitely check for these otherwise I'll order one online.

I like the idea of an adjustable heater because I feel safer, but how much is that really worth. The price tag of the deep blue is very attractive to me but I want to make sure to keep my fish safe.
