I just bought the heater and a thermometer.. But apparently the water is 80 degrees -_-
So how am I supposed to lower the temperature?

I didn't mean they aren't necessary, I only meant that since the room and water are probably already warm. It wouldn't take long to heat the tank to the desired temp.

The heater must be set too high. Unless the room is 80, there's no reason the tank would be.

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.

Yeah, but it doesn't work unless I turn it to a number over 80

But I haven't actually heated the water yet. It was 80 when I got home and checked it. I'm thinking it's due to my tank light.

Could be. What type of lighting do you have? Are you using one of those little sticker thermometers or a glass one?

My ten gallon tanks stay 80 with the light on. Ive been leaving the light off with the heater set so the temp don't drop to low at night.
