New guy here. I got a Fluval Spec for Christmas that I'm in the middle of cycling for a planted CRS tank. The heater I have is a 10w Aqueon which has been keeping the tank right around 80 to 81 F. Is this too warm to keep CRS? If so what heater have some of you used to get the best temp for your CRS? This heater is the smallest I could get at my LFS.

If the heater is adjustable, dial it down. If not, unplug or take out the heater.
