I've just brought this heater as i'm now cycling a 5 gallon tank for a betta and brought this heater and so far so good, it's digital and you work it by a control button and once you set your temp it flashes 3 times.
It's designed for betta fish for protection.

I paid £25-99 for it off Amazon but ebay are charging more but the link gives you a rough idea about it.

Yea i have one of those i use it when the fishes are sick and have to go into the bucket or i'm sick of a fish picking on another one and it has to go in the bucket or when i just feel like being mean and putting a fish in a bucket. I think they make two sizes I forget if the other one is 25 or 75 watt but it looks the same. I ran one off a battery for 12 hours a day for 2 days when i drove and stuck my fishes in the bucket to keep me company.

Well i did by a 25 watt and had to cancel it, as hubby said it makes the heater work harder for the temp you need, so i cancelled that :rolleyes: and got a 50 watt and the tanks always at 79.4F i keep testing it with my digital thermostat just to make sure but like you say they're good and quite handy, a bit on the expensive side but what isn't in the fish game.

Yea but there are not very many 50 watt heaters. They ahve larger ones with larger controllers. I have them and like them but they are too expensive. On the positive side i can stick the heaters some place i can't see it and stick the controller on the stand to see the temp.

Yes they do have larger and what i could see on amazon there was 3 different ones but that came in the most popular and i thought give it a go.

I can't see it in my hexagon tank as i've brought a nice silk plant so it won't hurt the betta once the tanks cycled but you can see if reflect from the right side.
