That, and bettas (and all living things for that matter) are genetically designed to be healthy and function in one set temperature range. Lets just say I'm not going to go fiddling with the heaters in my fry tanks lol.
I know it does, I was just telling from the quote that I had seen, the one that Catw0man had said before, I know you had commented on that as well.
I know large temp swings like that don't happen in the wild but the temps do still drop at night, sure not as big but they still drop regardless and change with the season change, even if it's just a slight change.
I wouldn't fiddle much with the temp either though if I were breeding, well not much at least. My Betta's get to go through 4-5 degree changes each day since their base temp is 78 but the tanks get up to 85-86 during the day in the summer, got to love the heat waves we've been getting down here >.<
