I got a 14 gallon tank today at walmart its 20 inches long by 10 inches wide and 18 inches tall , I want just one fish in the tank and I was wondering what fish would be good to have and it came with a heater and filter what should I set the heater on 76 degrees thank you

hmm.. solitary fish.. yea, a betta is the first fish that comes to mind and he'd be beside himself to have so much room. Most fish like to have at least 1 buddy but I think a gourami would also be content to have the tank to himself.
 
I don't think a single betta will look good in a 14g, one angel will look very pretty, they grow up to 6".
 
Angelfish do not need to be in something as shallow as any 14 gallon tank I've seen. They really need the height to get proper growth of finnage. Or for the finnage to stay properly aligned.
 
Like the angels, they'd need at least 20 gallon & best at 30 gallon or more. The difference would be they'd prefer a long to a tall.
