betta temp?

is 80 degrees too hot? I checked some guides and it sounded like its right around the correct temp, but I want to be sure so I don't cook our bettas!

Doesn't need top be quite so hot but it certainly won't harm as it's still within the acceptable range.

Willow's range sounded about right so it's up to you whereabout in that range you decide to keep your fish. Personally I prefer to stay at the lower ends of the temperature range for my fish as there is a higher oxygen content and a slower metabolism of the fish that way.

At the higher ends of the temp range male bettas will often build a bubble nest. If you're not trying to breed him thn you don't need this, but it's not harmful for them either. :)
