    How do I pick a heater? What wattage do I need, etc? Also how do the adjustable heaters work, are they adjustable by temperature (ie. 60F to 80F) or by wattage? This would be a heater for a 10gallon planted tank with a betta (ignore my bio I can't edit it).

    Adjustable heaters allow you to choose the temperature. You typically want 3-5 watts per gallon.

    For a heater, go for an adjustable. A 10 gallon you will be fine with a 50W. I prefer Aqueon heaters. I find them easier to turn the temp gauge. Eheims are very good too.

    Just buy a Aqueon Pro and you'll be fine. They are in my opinion the best heater on the market. I have also heard good things about the Cobalt Neo-Therm also. I would never buy a heater where you cannot set the temp yourself.
