Planted Tank Obsessed

Im having some major heating issues (at least i think they are).
I use a visitherm heater--i think 50 watt in my 5 gallon nano and i get major over heating and temp swings--is there any way to combat this? and does anyone else have similar problems?
i have it calibrated to about 78 degrees but in midday--my temp reading in like 84.9 degrees F. How can this be? I have a raised light fixture and decent air movement over the tank, yet im getting this dangerous temp reading.
And when I checked it today at about 12:30, the reading was that high (84.9), the heater was calibrated to 78 degrees, and the thing was still running!...what is going on here???
thanks for the help
