Hi folks, got a dilemma.
As daft things go, i decided to turn my heater up a degree or two the other day to keep fish a little warmer over the cold mornings. Couple of days ago i noticed the thermometer up at 28/29. The heater was set 22/24!
Anyhoo i decided thats a bit too warm so i unplugged it and turned it back down.
Only big problem was i never switched it back on...
Christmas day i realized this as temps were 21, switched it on and the ceramic filament has cracked and spluttered. Glass is intact, but it looks like its burnt out.
Shops will be closed for a day or two, so cant rush out and get another.
I have 2 tanks both 45 gal,
so should i just move the fish to the other tank,
or keep swapping the only working heater from tank to tank every day, and possibly risk damaging that one???
Help please im stuck on thinking whats the safest option
list of fish moving : 2 cherry barbs, 2 rosy barbs, 1 T-Barb, 1 Red/Black Barb, 7 Speckled,Bronze Corys, 4 Khulis, 1 Gibbiceps Plec.
Other tank has: 1 Plec , 3 Blue Loach, 3 Clown loach, 1 Tiger loach, about 12 Khuli's
