I would say yes, use the heater, ideally a bettas tank should be between 78-82, correct me if I'm wrong. So unless the room he is in is around these temps consistantly, even at night, I would use it. Mystery snail will be fine with it, I believe he is tropical too.

Ok thanks, so here is my next question. I just got my new 2 gall today and I am letting the water kinda set and circulate, so my fish isn't in there yet. Right now, she is in a small bowl without a heater. Should I put her in now and then put the heater in to gradually warm up with her? Or should I heat it up now and put her in when the temp is right? I am just worried that it would shock her if I put her in with the warm water that she isn't used to. She means the world to me so please give me your honest answer. Thanks again.

Sorry guys, not trying to be pushy, but I have to go get my fish in the tank and I'm not sure about the whole heater thing?

You want whatever you put her in to be the same temp that shes coming from. Heat up the tank and float her in it in a small cup until she's the same temp. :)

I just wanted to update and let anyone who's interested know that sidey is all better. I changed his water daily with AQ salt and bumped his temp up to 86. With in a day of bumping the temp all the ich came off! I'm so happy and want to extend many thanks to Old fish lady for the temp advice she gave to another member in a topic I happened to read! And many thanks for the support given to me in this topic. You all are great!
