You can seed it w/out heater, I done that more then once, as long as the tank is @ room Temp and not some freezing basement.

I agree. If there was enough of a rapid temperature change to cause internal components to crack, there could be fractures in the outer glass you aren't seeing, which could expose the guts of the heater to water and cause an electrical shock. Not worth the risk, if you ask me.
