Wait I'm confused now. I have a stealth heater that has the indicator light on the top of it. Do I have to change it out or is this one safe?

Blabomb and SGDude... see the attached list/letter
Marineland to stop selling some Stealth Pro Heaters, investigate quality issues

Looks like the Stealth was discontinued and the Stealth Pro is the recall.
The Visi therm has NO light on the top.
Here's a link to the marineland site
Our Products, shows the packaging. I was trying to find a pic of the actual heater, you will have to google image a Visi therm aquarium heater but the above will show you the box and what to look for. I just got two of them exactly as shown in the last 4 months. I'm sure if you contact Marineland or United Pet Group you can get an answer how to replace yours if applicable.

The Stealth Pros are the black shatterproof material with the indicator light on the top that turns red when it's heating and green when it's at temp and are being recalled (100, 150, 200, 250 and 300 watt). The Marineland Visi-Therm heaters are the glass ones. These are ok. Check this link for more info Marineland to stop selling some Stealth Pro Heaters, investigate quality issues

I called the local Petsmart on Monday, they confirmed recall, told me to bring mine in to exchange. I stated I wanted a quick transaction since I did not want tank to cool.

I put two heaters, four attachment devices, in a bag and took them in. Was told to take two of my choice, and I got two 250's, Aqueon, I think.

No one asked for saleslip, receipt ...anything. All Marineland heaters were off the shelves. I was not in store 4 minutes.

We have a very, very good Petsmart here. I have said it before, and hope I will say it again.

My LFS just told me about the recall. I have 3 of the Stealth Pros! I just want to get them out of my tanks. Unfortunately I did not buy them at PetSmart.

Any suggestions for new heaters? I tend to keep my house pretty cool in the winter. I am pretty much a newbie. Still can't believe I bought three of these things. Oh, well.

My tanks I need new heaters for are:

20 gallon long (is it possible to use two 50 watt heaters?)

10 gallon

5.5 gallon

Thanks.

Call marineland they will tell you what to do.

They can send you new glass ones
then you send yours to them.

Or

You can buy new ones and send them
a receipt and they will refund you.

Just talk to them first by phone or email.

Where did you get your heaters from? I got mine from Dr. Foster's and Smith and I am getting 2 new heaters for my tanks. They are sending them out right away and I should have them in the next 7 days. I had to pay $8.00 because the new ones I chose are a little more but I am fine with that. They are covering the shipping and the total that I had paid for the 2 heaters 8 months ago. I love Dr. Foster's and Smith and cannot say enough good stuff about their customer service department.

Try calling where ever you got your heaters from. They should cover it.. that or go right to MarineLand.
