Smile heater or not?

hi all! im new :) ive been poking around for the past 3 days though

im conditioning a 10g tank in my living room right now in hopes to get about 4-5 female bettas :) just need to get more plants and fun hiding spots

so my question is, my living room is about 80-85 degrees (my fiancee likes it kinda hot in here) should i get a heater?

If it stays that way year round, I don't see why you'd need one. I would get a thermometer and keep an eye on the temp. in the tank just to see where it sits at through a few days.

make sure the kind of thermometer you get is inside the tank.. the stick on ones don't work. Another useful thing to have is a digital kitchen thermometer to check the temp.
