7.5W Grreat aquarium heater for 5.5 gallon tank

I just bought a 5.5 gallon tank and a 7.5 W Grreat Aquarium heater to heat the tank for one bettaautolinker.com autolinking image fish. It doesn't say anything about a preset temperature. Do mini heaters just keep heating the tank then? I didn't know they had adjustable heaters when I bought it. The PetSmart person recommended this one so I went with it. Just don't want it to get too warm.

It probably won't keep it warm enough for a bettaautolinker.com autolinking image, best to get an adjustable one. Bettas like temps close to 80 to be comfortable.

220 Tank build + 62 other tanks.

I have a 5.5 gallon tank and a 50 watt heater in the tank, it keeps the tank nice and warm. Bettas love warmth and will be more active being warm. A 7 watt heater will most likely not keep a 5.5 gallon tank warm for the bettaautolinker.com autolinking image.

Part of that depends on the temperature of the room, also... I would get a thermometer to put in the tank (or if you have one in the medicine cabinet/kitchen [I love the laser one my wife has in the kitchen, since I don't have to stick it in the water]) and see what the temp is before buying something else.

Currently setup (down to 20!):
8x 10g grow out tanks + 1 microcrab tank
1x 20g female crayfish tank
1x 20g Endler tank
2x 20g long crayfish breeders
1x 29g breeder for Mosquito Fish
1x 29g blue crayfish growout tank
1x 45g tall Super Reds
1x 55g Wife's Shrimp tank
1x 60g Platys
1x 75g Super Reds
1x 75g + 20g long sump Cats, Pickerel, Bait, and Punkin

Waiting for room:
4x random <5 gallon
12x 5g
15x 10g
1x 17g
2x 29g
2x 55g
1x 75g
