need to look at getting a water heater for 2g betta tank!

Hi there, I need some shopping advise for my Female Betta as I am sure you are all aware its starting to get to be fall and soon winter...and Missouri weather is very odd getting very cool quickly.( I have already brought in my outdoor bonsai tree) anyway I have a light on my 2g tank in my room for my betta which I leave on pretty reguarly but it does not seem to be doing the trick for heating the water to well..and my girl seems to very moppy and sad...since her water is getting all cool I want to get her a small water heater (preferably one that will not cost an arm and a leg) before it gets too cold.
so any suggestions would be wonderful...hopefully I can picks something up for her fairly soon!
(sorry if this is a little hard to read, I am at school at the moment and about ready to head out so I had to rush this post...if I need to I am going to come back on and proof read this to make it more reader friendly, but again any help would be very, very nice Thanks!!)

It's tricky heating a tank that small but you could try a 25-watt...the ones that you can adjust to certain temperatures work the best .

If you think 25-watts is too much then you could try a heater like this:
2-5 Gallon Mini Aquarium Heater

Thanks a lot Sasami I am sure those will help I might be wrong but I think a 25 watt might be a bit too much for somehing as small as a 2g tank..so I will try the smaller one first and if I don't think it is doing the job too well I will upgrade.
