- - submersible heaters?
|SinCrisis ||12-16-2008 04:58 PM |
Hey i was wondering how many people use submersible heaters and actually submerse the entire heater in the water? I'm kinda worried about the heater springing a leak and electrocuting all my fish...

i do on 4 different tanks and have never had a problem.

Oh, there is another choice? I thought all were submersible... oops! :-)
I use them on all my tanks.

Yep, never had a problem with any of the four I use.

All of mine are fully submersible. Only way to go IMO.:-)

I only own one non-submersible heater, and it's definitely more of a pain than the submersible type. I don't like the screw clamp that holds it onto the edge of the tank, and I don't like that I have to unplug it every time I do a water change. Submersible avoids these problems and also gives you more flexibility in heater placement. Finally...the non-fully submersible ones could break just like the submersible ones and expose your fish to loose current just as easily, so there's really no advantage to non-submersible there. If you're worried about breakage, get a shatterproof heater like the Stealth.

I love my Stealths. With a black background they just disappear.
I use them in five tanks with no complaints. I mount them to the glass near the bottom and center of the tank horizontally to get better heat distribution.:-)

One of my pet peeves is vertical heaters. I see them and have to bite my tongue.
