    Default A little confused...

    I know the proper temperature range for keeping a betta is 78-82 f (some would say even higher, but that is debatable) but which temperature is ideal? I find that most of you here tend to keep your buddies at 82 f though I keep mine at 80 f just to be somewhere in between. I guess I'm a little scared after having read discus keepers talk about how when they kept bettas upwards of 84 f they would simply burn out and fall ill or die after a few months. Thoughts?

    I think 80 is probably fine. I know they don't do well at lower temps - they tend to hover at the bottom of the tank and get stressed if the water is too cool but if the fish is acting normally, eating, etc. you have the tank at a good temp.
