Sorry the title is weird. I have a divided 10 gallon with an aqueon pre-set heater. It's only reaching 72F but still cycling on and off. One of my betta look cold, his fins used to be really spread out but now he looks like he did that time I forget to plug in the heater after a WC. I bought an adjustable heater but I have NO idea how to add it. The preset is in the middle section, my thoughts were to put the heaters on each end. I'm worried that if I go from 72 to 78 I'll shock them. Should I set my adj. to like, 74, then the next day 76 until I reach 78-80ish? Also, am I better off buying a second adjustable in the future? I'm worried that if my adjustable is set to 82 for healing, my preset will turn off on the opposite side. The dividers are from lifewithpets and have holes in them for water flow, but with using 3 sponge filters, the flow is not very strong (because I own betta...). TIA guys!
