If you are heating this up to 70-80 degrees then you have nothing to worry about with that pvc tank-holder. As long as you remain 100 or below, you should be fine.

As for insulating this, use one wrap of duct tape around the bottle.

I'd also put a tempy gauge on this thing. Maybe get fancy and hook the heater circuit with a relay connected to a temperature switch. You should make this heater adjustable with a potentiometer too.

Sorry if you have already decided on one of these ideas because then I would just be adding this for nothing, but if you somehow modded an electric blanket to run on a battery you could just wrap it around the tank.
