In that case keeping the water at 25C until they are gone won't hurt the betta. I'd just replace them as time goes on with Cardinals as time goes and when they are gone bump the temp up a little.

Before I knew better I kept a betta in a 1 gallon bowl for 4 years with no filtration or heat. They are resilient fish and can do well in less than optimal conditions for a long time.

Neons are good up to 27 degrees Celsius. 26 shouldn't hurt them.

I thought neons did not like over 76F?

I haven't heard that. I got a school of them sitting in 78 degree water as we speak for about 3 years now. Probably another fish with multiple stated temp ranges which confuses.

I understand. My bad then.
Yes I agree with going ahead and raising the temperature to 26C

If you got a digital thermostat that does .5 degree increments then you could do 25.5 degrees Celsius if you would be more comfortable with that.

So a heater with a built in thermostat? I've owned two of those and i was never able to get one that was accurate.... At least with what my actual tank water registered. I'm convinced the heater is probably running say 80 degrees but the water could be 78. IME.

I kinda screwed up my question to you. I meant a digital thermometer that shows .5 increments.
