Angry Tetra HT10 50W Submersible Heater

We just put this Tetra heater in my Betta's tank yesterday, but I can't tell if it's working or not. We also have a thermometer in there and the water seems to be at about 76 degrees, but the indicator light on the heater never came on. It has never been either red or green. There's been no light. And on another note - can a Betta live in a 5 gallon tank when the water temp is at 76 degrees?

76 is a kind of low especially with the changing of seasons. From what I am told 80 is a better temperature for bettas. Although I have read that bettas can get used to cooler temperatures... I am not sure that is a good idea. I recommend returning the heater. I had a heater that did not work and petsmart exchanged it without a receipt or package.

As long temperature is stable at 76*F your OK, I would like to see the see the temp a little higher but if the temp isn't yo-yoing up and down he'll be fine.
