I just swapped my stealth for the Fluval M series but when i got home i realised that its not a fully submersible heater. The lip on my tank makes it impossible to put on the tank and i cant lower my water as its for the turtle tank so i need it almost to the lip. Guess i will be going back tomorrow to get the Aqueon model.

Hey kymmie, the Pro series are the ones they are recalling. The original Stealth (the ones without the indicator light on the knob) and the Visi-Therms (the glass ones) are fine as far as I know. Maybe a call to Marineland will clear that question up? I have the Pros on a couple of my tanks...sigh. I guess I'll have to pull them out. Too bad, I really like them. I also have an original Stealth that's been going strong for over 3 years now.

I have a Jaeger on my QT tank and so far I like it. The only con is that it is glass and it is not as compact as the Pros are. I really like the shatterproof black material of the stealth heaters. But it does have an indicator light and it holds the temp very steady.

Good to know, all mine are the original Stealths, I only have one that is the Pro series. The Pro series is iin a 6gl acrylic tank. The Jaeger is glass but fully submersible??

Yes, the Jaegers are submersible.

Hmmm.the letter states the recall is for the 100, 200 and 250 watt heaters so you may be ok on your 6 gallon. What wattage is it? But then, do you want to chance it?

It's a 50 watt. If the 100, 200 & 250's aren't any good, how can the 50 be any good??
No, I do not want to chance it. I have enough problems already.

Not sure if anyone else has found this link and already posted it.... I didn't read everyone's messages, but I have been looking for info.
Marineland to stop selling some Stealth Pro Heaters, investigate quality issues

If this is infact valid info from United Pet Co. then my new Visi-therm is their replacement item so I'm ok.
Hope this info helps.

Hey Curt. Looks like the Visi Therm is the good one that they are now using in place of the Stealth. Now it's also the one I had that failed but they shipped me another free, life-time warranty. So I'm happy for now, unless I hear different. good luck.
