That's way too cold. I suggest you get an adjustable heater, 10-25 watts.
The minimum temp is 75. But they thrive in 78-80 degrees.

Too cold of water is both uncomfortable and makes them more prone to illness & disease- which is life threatening.

I don't have personal experience with heaters small
Enough for your tank but I've heard good things about fluval and elite heaters. Make sure the heater you buy is adjustable, has thermostat and is between 10-25 watts.

If it's not adjustable it won't heat Like you want it to.

Would you order a heater online? I can find you a good heater but it would be one only good for ordering online.

You don't have to let the tank water sit long, It will take a few hours to get to room temp.

You can heat a gallon of water you just need a low wattage adjustable heater.

There are very few fish that can go in a 1 gal tank.
