  1. Here I am ready ready for blissful sleep just a quick gaze through out the basement fishroom. Bam. . .stop right there. The scaped 10 gallon lemon eyed long fin pleco fry grow out tank has no action. Where are all the pre teen pleco fry? Feel the water. . . wooo that water is cold. Check the heater aghh, just put this in two days ago, piece of garbage. The agony, the loss of life, months of work poof gone. I saved the hardiest but not before losing 80%. Funny thing is up till a week ago I had two 25 watt heaters in the 10 gallon. I just switched to a 50 watt two days ago. Two heater in a special tank like this from now on. So what is your heater story? Please I can't be the only one. Many thanks Ted K from Massachusetts basement fishroom.
  2. I woke up this morning to find a patch of bubbles in one of my tanks.. I tested the water and everything was perfect so I scooped out the bubbles and kept and eye on it. Then I noticed the bottom cap had come off the heater. (It's a little 25w glass cheap one, but its adjustable and seemed to be doing the job) I popped the cap back on. Then I noticed the the heater had bubbles all over the under side and it was making a steady stream of tiny bubbles (exactly the same size and consistency as pearling) Turned it off and let it cool in case it was over heating (water felt normal and I didn't get electrocuted) when I removed it the heater I thought I'd find it cracked but it had this weird stuff on it.. only in a patch and only on the underside. It's hard and crunchy like pumice stone. There's no water inside the glass The heater has only been in the water for about 7 weeks. 🤔 Any idea what's up with it? Thank you 😊
