To be honest, I doubt he can even feel the 2 degree difference if that's what you're worried about. I mean, when we go outside, do we feel the difference between 78 and 80 degrees? Probably not.

There is a large debate as to what temperature bettas should be kept at. As long as they are in the 76-82 degree area and temperature swings are to a minimum he should be fine. I keep one tank at 78 and another at 80. All depends on the heater, if the light gives off heat, etc.

Anything in between would be good… never go under 78 though. I keep mine at 80.

okies. a word of advice, always keep your boxes and receipts for these things. it is not uncommon for heaters to not work, so next time you buy something keep everything until you are sure that it works properly ( or the return period has passed) it might sve you some trouble late on =D

As mentioned before, stability is more important than the actual temperature within an acceptable range of 76*/82*.

Nitrifying bacteria like it warm. While fishless cycling, >85* is not too hot. After the bacteria are established, any temp will do.
