| || | heater issue... i think?!
yesterday i moved all the guppies to my wife's 29 gal temporarily so i can start the build on my 29 (guppies will be back in my tank until either i re home them or i set up the major build in the dining room (i will make a thread on this later. how ever i noted that the heater in the 20 the guppies came from was a bit small for a 29 so thinking i just took down the platy tank i would just use two heaters.. this all sounds logical and good in my eyes and as i am building slowly i am just getting everything in place until i clean the rest of the sand.. then it hits me, hey this heater just made a really odd sound...... i look and the inside has springs in little glass tubes... the ends of a few of the tubes are broken!!!!!!! now not wanting to start a fire or get the shock of a life time i decided to write here and ask if this heater can still be used?????
the outer glass shows no damage just a few of the small inner glass tubes that house the springs...
please some one let me know so i can plan an adjust my build
