Is my Aquarium warm enough?

Wow, I'm starting to feel guilty posting so many questions, every single day, in these threads. Sorry if I'm a pest.

When I got my tank, I got a 10 Gallon LED Kit from Tetra. All seems to be quality, with the exception of the heater. Unless I am being too picky.

I wanted to get some opinions here. I have a digital thermometer, and, even with a regular thermometer, it appears I am getting roughly the same reading. My water temp is about 77.2.

The heater that came with it doesent have a temperature control, and, well, frankly got bad reviews on amazon. It is the Tetra 10.

So, money isnt a problem. I can afford another heater. What does everyone think about this one?

77 is warm enough for a betta, but it's really nice to have an adjustable heater. It holds the temperature more stable, and allows you to adapt to illnesses and things.

I don't know anything about the ViaAqua heaters, but 100W is perfect for a 10g.

I have Aqueon and Hydor heaters, and have no complaints.

I actually have the Betta and 6 Neons. But, I really feel like an adjustable heater is the way to go.

I confess, I have no knowledge about Neons.

Not even the Dodge kind...

If you have the money go for adjustable though 77 is a OK temperature.

Just as a warning, I have a via aqua heater and on the package it says:

"This heater contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects."

Just to be fair, California thinks just about everything causes cancer...

They don't even allow the fake marimo balls...

That's not to excuse the heater, as I have no idea what the chemicals are, but still...

Just about everything can be linked to cancer.
