You can't really go by the dial on the heater, as far as the Stealth is concerned. You also need to have a thermometer in the tank. I assume you do?? I keep most of all my tanks at 78 and for some of the heaters that's a setting of 75 on the dial, on another heater it's 82 on the dial of the heater. The dial on the heater is just a gauge, you need a thermometer to know what the EXACT temp the water is. HTH
