Woke up this morning around 830 to feed my fish in my 75 gallon to find my Penn Plax heater had busted! The bottom completely busted out. Only about 6-7 months old. Thank GOD I have 2 heaters in my aquarium. I'm really irritated. This is my second heater to malfuntion in as many weeks. The first was a Marineland 75w that quit working in my saltwater tank after just 3 days, and now this one. That's it, I'm only buy eheim from now on. PFFFT:evil::-?
I just had a heater malfunction in one of my quarantine tanks - killed my new fish. $50 in the garbage, literally. I'm sure glad that my show tanks are unheated.

The odds of that happening are pretty low with two different brands in so little time. Are you using a surge protecter strip (assuming they were both plugged into the same socket)?
Fluval and eheim.. I would swear by no others
I have an opinion but I'll not share it as I'm certain I will JINX myself.
Looks like you didn't lose any livestock, so thats a good thing and you are only out the cost of the heater....
