The right temp?

I just got my first betta. I originally read on another site to set the temperature between 74-82 F. Right now my tank is at 76-77F and I just put 'Repunzel' in it today. Should I increase the temperature? I am reading that some keep their tanks a little warmer. Is it safe to increase it?

I think so. As long as it doesn't get higher than 82*F

I generally try to keep my tanks around 78-80 for my boys. One of my heaters 76-77 most of the time in a KK. As long as you aren't under 76 I say your fine. So it wouldn't hurt to bump it up a bit. As said before do not push it pass 82* under normal circumstances. (Some health conditions particularly parasites can be helped by going as high as 85*)

+1 to Freekmike. The range for optimum health is between 78 and 82. If you can get 80, you're sweet. :)
