Stealth Pro 50 Watt heater; any good?
Hello! Just bought a marine land stealth pro 50 watt heater, and I noticed its not heating my 12 gallon tank properly. Plus I did some searching and heard quite a few horror stories on the stealth pro *albeit for the 100+ watt ones* I was wondering if this heater is defective and I should get a new one *if so, any suggestions for good brands?* or if I should just be patient and wait for the temperature to fully cycle up.
Example; I set my heater to go up to 78 degrees, it only heats up to 72/73 degrees and turns off. Right now I cranked it up to 82 degrees, and its slowly inching up to 76 degrees. Thanks for the help!
I'd double check on those. There was a recall not too long ago.
Yea, I checked up on the recall. So far it only mentions the 100+ watt heaters, nothing on the 25 or 50 watt ones.
cool beans :)
I have an older one (several years now) and it works exactly like it is supposed to ;)
