    Sometime in the future I’m planning to get a 5.5 gallon tank and I was wondering what a good heater wattage would be? (In this tank I’m just going to get a male betta and let it do a fishless cycle!)

    50watts should be fine, I have a 5.5 and I just threw a spare 100watt tetra heater in there but it’s overkill
