80 is still cool IMO.

An adjustable heater is a must.

Also you want to attempt in June correct? I'd wait at least a year to do more research and invest in a quality pair.

trust me there is a LOT of research xD

especially if you did not know bettas needed heaters in the first place...

I don't know anyone who can get a pair to breed without the water being warmer. the fry die, because the surface will be dry and cold... their labrynth organs will fail.

I got a pair to breed in cooler water but the fry never made it.

80F is COLD in tropical terms. The water should be in mid 80s.

Bettas are lucky to get 80 degree water in the wild.. I walked through marshes to find wild ones. Pretty sure it was not 80 lol

It's better for fry to have warm humid air and water. It's better for someone NEW to betta breeding to keep the water at the appropriate temperature(s).

I've been in tropical areas before. It's cold. I've also talked to IBC judge and transhipper Linda Olson and she came to same conclusion. The water is very warm in Thailand. By human standards maybe not. 84F water in Mexico is still cold for a scuba diver like me. However to a betta that's perfectly warm.

MrV is right, next time you take a bath or shower, take the temp. You'll be suprised how warm it is. Much warmer than 80 degrees.

Of course a warmer betta is a happy betta. Remember temp changes cause the fry to die off. You don't want it to vary in temp daily or your Betta fry are going to be brain dead.

Most people like a temp of 72-75. And bettas like a temp of 80-85. It would be like keeping people at 40 degrees all the time, we can live at that temp but will we be happy/healthy? NO. That is why bettas NEED to have there temp around 80 ALL the time.
