Hey again :-). I just want a short answer on this one please. Do i have to have a heater guard as my fish or shrimp do not seem to be getting hurt by the heater but it is usually recommended so i ask. thank you
To be honest I have never seen anyone use one, and I have only seen a single heater brand come with one (Fluval).
I'm going to say not needed.
Agreed, unless you notice a fish with white skin patches (NOT ich), hanging close to the heater and getting fried, then not needed.
I have inline heaters anyway so kind of irrelevant to me anyway :-)
Thanks guys :-) one of my rams does have a small white patch not spot but she does not usually hang around the heater so is this ok?
They're useful for large fish that can break heaters.
can you post a picture if at all possible?
Yeah ill try to but i don't have my camera right now ill post one as soon as i can. she seems to be fine though. And she does not hang about the heater a lot. ill post a pic as soon as i can.
