unfortunately it doesnt average 80. I wasnt very clear. What i meant by "Its either 78 or 82
is that 78 or 80 is the average.
Therefore on one setting the temp ranges for 76 to 79 and on the next setting it ranges for 81 to 83, sometimes even 84..

What do guys think, am I being a little bit too fussy?

Not being fussy at all. I can't tell you about the controller you're looking at, but the controller on your current heater is definitely not ok. I'd replace it. The variance should only be 1 degree, not 3.

I just found what was wrong with my heater. Apparently I had the airstone too close to the heater and it was messing with the heater's thermostat. I moved the airstone a couple inches away from the heater and is now holding the temperature at a steady 79.
