Any brand you recommend that has a built in thermometer? I like the fact that it turns on or off to keep temp within a half of a degreeGet rid of them asap, it’s not a question of if, but when. They will either runaway on heating, just not turn on, or explode. Get literally anything else lol.
Honestly man I just have a ehime Jager and a aqueon as a back up now. Both are plugged into my ink bird I recorded checking out the ink birds.Any brand you recommend that has a built in thermometer? I like the fact that it turns on or off to keep temp within a half of a degree
Same thing happened to me. 150 watt stuck on max temp for days at least, cooked and killed most of my coral.I have a 100w in my mixing container because it’s broke and stuck on 94 degrees. It fried my tank awhile back making it reach 88 before being noticed. Now it sits in my mix station keeping the salt water warm. I like the slim look and set and forget with the thermostat light. But this is scary
The Eheim Jager is also my preferred heater. But it's not without some minor flaws. Its oversized and the can be hard to calibrate, but once dialed in its rock solid.Every lfs around me recommended those heaters, but thanks to R2R I avoided them for this reason. I've had 2 1eheim Jager on my tank for close to a year now with no issues whatsoever
Glad to hear you came out on the other side 100%!!Just an update. Everything made it alive! So to anyone who encounters the same thing. Immediately do water changes, run double dosage carbon, polyfilter, and cubrisorb. I was very lucky that I was in immediate vicinity when it happened!
