{on a side note, I unplugged it, and will check the temp in the AM} I do have an adjustable one that I got in a tank kit today, but I want to get some other tropical fish for the 10 gallon... so I can always see how well the constant heater works in that tank if necessary.
I fill a bucket with tap water in the amount I am planning on changing. I condition with Prime (a conditioner that removes chloramines is a must; most people recommed Prime because it is highly concentrated and all you need is two drops per gallon). Then I stick my small Marineland heater in the water and plug it in, and let it sit till the next day. I let my water sit out so I know it will have time to heat and become close enough to the old temperature. I don't really have a lot of bubbles unless I've just set up a new tank. Those bubbles are normal and go away after a few days.
