it has behaved for another couple of days and then this morning it was only 64, and the poor fish were sitting around!
the heater is a 200W Blue Planet Tank Maid.
does anyone have any ideas?
My idea would be to get a new heater! Mine just did the same, and I figured the temp sensor was shot. I too had my tank go to almost 90 degrees.
