So I did a 50% water change put in coller water and got the temperature down to 81, hopefully itll come down to 80 soon enough since I have the AC on very high now...

My question is about the pre heated heater... The brand is called deep blue and its for tanks upto 5 gallons... Since theres no button or switch for me to change the temperature to, how do I know what it is pre heated to? Or do I plug it in once the water gets to a temperature I want it to stay atand the heater helps it stay at that temp??

Thank you :)
83 degrees without a heater is not a bad don't want it much higher, but a stable warm temp is good. It depends on where you live too. I live in the South and my tanks are all unheated for the summer and stay at an exact 80 degrees. Let everything settle for a while, but don't try and cool the water down. I would watch the thermometer, keep it away from direct AC, and let your fish relax a bit. You'll get the hang of your water changes etc. He is beautiful, and glad you found the site..welcome!
