5 Gallon Tank It's too wattage huh?

BirdMom

I could have swore that heater that I had in storage was a 50w but I guess it's a 100w...the aquarium is a 5.5 gallons & the heater is a 100w Aqueno pro adjustable, our apartment is kept at 70°F (+/- 2°F)

Will it heat the tank too fast/hot for "Troy" my Daughter's Betta?

Troy is currently floating in my 29 gallon in a breeder cage.

Thank y'all just want to make sure our boy Troy stays happy...if needed I will buy a 50w Aqueno pro adjustable heater but don't want to spend $40+/- on a new heater if we don't need to.

As long as it’s working fine there shouldn’t be any issues, although if it malfunctions it will overheat faster than a 50w so I’d test it in a bucket for a day or two to make sure it’s working.

It seems to be working...am currently testing it, just need to make sure the temp stays stable for a while before adding the old fiter media & plants & a day after that when anything stirred up from adding the plants (which are going to be from my 29 gallon that is in) gets cleaned by the filter then I'll test the water then add Troy if all is good
