That's why I said use the heater for smaller tanks, they come in handy for winter :)

You shouldn't have to, just avoid setting the temp too high or the heater may get stressed and get a variety of diseases from ich to cable rot. Actually, overworking the heater will probably just increase how long it takes to heat up the tank, so avoid making water changes colder than they have to be.

well, it's a Baby Biorb (like this, minus the plants: http://www.biorbfishtanks.com/ProductImages/4gbiorb-black-small.jpg (I'm spotting four WCMs lol)), so for the heater to be straight and work properly (you need a special heater for it) it needs to be lower without being fully emersed.

Ah, I see....
Is it designed to have a lower and higher water level?

Well, the level has to be above the bubbler tube (the round thing in the middle) for oxygen to flow through the water. I normally try to keep it where the pic is.

Hmmm.... I would recommend either:
A: lower the water level
B: Get mosquitofish instead
C: Possibly one of my best recommendations Nawth, get a dwarf puffer. Loads of personality, will eat pellets, and will learn to recognize you and beg.

Unfortunately, unless you can keep the temp above 75 degrees, dropping below for a week per month max, you're going to have problems.

Well think about it, people keep Bettas in non-filtered glass fishbowls, it'd probably survive in a filtered 4 gallon.

and I don't think I could switch to a dwarf puffer, I don't think that tanks adapted to be saltwater.
