I just had a heater emergency
I am so happy and thankful that I was home when I was. I was sitting here in my office looking at some things on the computer when I heard this funny noise. Then I smelled something. I followed the noise to my fish tank and then saw my heater with a line of bubbles coming out of it. The smell was coming from the heater and the heater had a crack in it.
I am so mad since I got this stupid heater less then 4 months ago. It is a Stealth Pro heater and supposed to be really good. I immediately unplugged and removed it and then jumped in the car to go get another heater. The store assured me that this was a very rare occurrence with the Stealth heaters and I have heard a lot of good things about them from here and other fish fanciers. I got another one but will be chatting with the company about this.
Thankfully my fish are alright and not fried. I actually bought 2 heater's this time so I don't repeat the emergency. I know people always say one of the biggest killers of fish is temperature change. I didn't want a big drop in temperature and to lose my fish either. I am just so happy I was home at the right time. My poor little fish could have ended up dead. Thank God, they had an Angel watching over them today.
