The extra small is ok

I have a 5 gallon glass tank for my 1 hermit crab, and the extra small heater heats it to about 21 degrees (Celcius) with a mesh lid. I know the heat would be higher with a glass lid but they didn't have one. The heater doesn't really heat the air, it mosty just warms the sand right above the heater which is ok because my crab likes to hide in his warm little cocohut above the heat. I think that this would heat a 2.5 gallon tank perfectly, but the extra small barely heats my 5 gallon tank. For the price it does the job.
Pros: it is small and portable, easy to set up
Cons: barely heats my 5 gallon tank
