Haha yeah probably because its like 85* F+ in my room in the summer (ugh). But you meant dont pour like 50*F water on the heater anyway, right?

Ya. In the wintertime when the tap water cools down, avoid pouring it directly on the heater or warm it up before adding it to the tank. Cold water on the heater would have a similar effect as pouring hot water on a frozen windshield to defrost it!

what is a good water heater? I want to get one for my 1.5 gal tank. The water is at 72 degrees F for my betta. He is pretty active at the temp. Should I add a heater and what is a better temp?
