Heater Temperature?

I'm getting a new Betta in a couple days. I got a Heater for a 2-10 Gallon tank. The tank i'm heating is a 2.5 gallon tank with a built in filter. The heater i got is non-adjustable and is supossed to heat the water to 78 degrees. I have been cycling the tank for a few days and the water has only been heating to 76. We keep are house kinda cold so i can understand why its not heating up.

Should i be worried about the heater? Is 76 a good temperature for Betta's?
Thank You!

Did you just buy the heater? You might do better to just take it back and buy a different type.

Otherwise, 76 is okay. It isn't great, it is like being outside in a t-shirt on a day you wish you had a jacket. You can live with it, but you wish you could go inside and get warmer. And if you ever have problems with Ick or another disease where raising the temp could solve your problems, you will probably wish you had an adjustable one.

I wanted to buy an adjustable one but this was the only heater any of the stores had for my tank size.
