Well I know it has to be completely submerged, for starts. There's probably an adjustable knob (on the top?) as well for temperature. It just looks like one of those heaters that are adjustable. And what "numbers" are you talking about? You mean the temperature? THe temperature should be a STEADY 77-80F. 80 seems to be a good temperature.

70? Is that a typo for 80? Because 70 is low, haha.

22-35...the only thing I can think of is that is Celsius, but I could easily be wrong.

Set the heater to "26". That ought to be right.
