Question Water Temp

I know that our Bettas love warm water, but how warm is too warm? My 14yr old turned off Red's light early evening yesterday cause she was worried that the water was too warm for him. I don't think he likes the light off lol. Anyway the water was like 85 F

Thank you and Huggles

Hmm I guess that good for me. I don't use heaters but their temp stays between 74-78ish degrees. But I'm sure once I get the 10 gal set up it will be cooler because of how big it is.

I'd say anywhere from 74 to 82-83 is good.
