Swinging water temp?

Hi!

Is in 'normal' for the temp to swing about 2 degrees up or down from night to day?
Heater is 25w and tank is 15litres.

Thanks :)

Yes.... but what temp does it rise/fall to? My house is cooler at night, so the water temp is a little lower in the morning, but it's still in the "acceptable" range for bettas.

It's fine.. a degree or two raise/drop won't harm a healthy betta. Especially if it's a slow change.

Ok well that's good to know. It's normally 26 during the day and about 24 at night/early morning

A swing of 26C (79F) to 24C (75F) at night is OK. If you think about it, even in their natural habitat, there's going to be a slight temperature drop at night. It doesn't happen quickly, because water cools down slowly, and heats up slowly. So this is all fine.

I would try to keep the temp from dropping much further at night though, since 24C is about the bottom limit you want. (Ie: 23C is a little too cool, IMO.) But your water 2C temp swings between day and night are fine.
