You know that people can control what temperature their house is set to, right?
I LIVE IN FLORIDA! AND ROOM TEMP WATER IN MY HOUSE IS 72 DEGREES. My house is not the same temperature as it is outdoors, and more than likely neither is Kitty's.

If her house is set to around 80 and STAYS at that temp night and day, a heater is not needed.

Water is colder than the air around it plus small bodies of water can have rapid temp swings.

Yes if her air is 80 then the water might be 78. 78 is an okay temperature for a betta.

Its best not to bash someone before you know for sure what is going on

re you sure it is truly cycled? Because 99% water changes make it very hard if not impossible to have a cycled tank.
What is your ammonia/nitrite/nitrate levels?
Most of the bacteria is in the filter not in the water column. As long as they are not washing the decor, tank walls and are not replacing the filter - it should stay cycled.

You do realize I am that "few" that keep my house heated to 26-28 degrees CELCIU?s. -checks- which is between 78 and 80. I live in Canada. Now, if I do not have my house that hot, the basement room is kept at 28 even. Therefore heaters are optionary.

Decorations are optional, they did add plants after the picture was taken (as mentioned, re-read if you deny). I have used some "hiding spots" for some bettas and they do not use them. Others always use them to sleep in. Know your OWN INDIVIDUAL BETTA, and you do not need to do what every Jon or Jane does.

Just to mention, a better way to phrase it instead of saying YOU HAVE TO which comes across as pushy, try saying "Just make sure not to let the temperature drop beneath 76, because bettas do so much better in warmer water! Do you have any fabric plants in your area? I have some and they are awesome!" Be encouraging, not discouraging. Because TEXT DOES NOT HAVE TONE, the way everything is typed, is read differently by every single person on here.
