Why i will never trust a water heater again...

Postby Dan » 2007-05-05 12:50

I have a 48x12x15 tank and bought a new 150W heater for it yesterday (i know its not ideal for a tank of that size) so i could put the old 1 back in my turtle tank and put the smaller heater back in my small trop tank. I got it home, set it to 24C and thought no more of it. I just looked at my thermometer in the 4ft tank and the water is 31C :o i expected some difference in temperature but thats just rediculous.

It happens. Never go by the setting on the heater, always the thermomiter.. I guess you've figured that by now tho :P :tup:

everything is a-ok.... the bloodfin tetras seemed a bit hyper for a while but they always are. there doesnt seem to be any negative effects on the little guys.
