Heater Help

My heater is a Tetra Submersible Aquarium Heater and it has not been keeping my cycling tank at a right temp for a betta.
It is at 76 degrees. Is that too low?

I keep mine 78 to 80. Is the heater working properly? How many watts is the heater and how big is the tank?

I just had this happen to me. I picked up a Marineland Stealth 50 watt heater for my 10 gallon. I could not get the temp past 74. I returned it for a Fluval 50 watt and have no problems getting the temp I need. You might want to consider getting another heater if you can only get it to 76.

I'm assuming the heater is adjustable. Maybe try a second thermometer to verify it is for sure bad. It happened to someone else on here.
