Unfortunately that's not large enough to heat a 3+ gallon tank. I'd go for an adjustable 25 watt and return the 7.5.

Good to hear it reached 78. I'd just monitor it, particularly in colder weather, to ensure that it's actually maintaining that heat consistently.

Also if you have little to no water movement, it can sometimes take a while for a heater to heat the water as it will warm up only the water around the heater and then the thermostat will shut off as it thinks the tank has reached the set temperature.
