I got a heart for my 3.5 gallon and it heats to about 82 degrees F. I think I read 80 is the ideal temp but I can’t adjust the heater. Without a heater and just using our room temp, it stays around 75-76. Wondering if I should just take out the heater. Not sure if room temp is more comfortable or 82

Yea iirc, 80 degrees F is like on the top end of what is suitible for bettas but, 76 is like perfect for them so ye, removing the heater is a good idea.

Okay I removed it haha, thank you. The lowest it’s dropped to is 74 degrees on a particularly hot day. Which I think is still okay
