Exclamation His heater broke!

I noticed that Velvets heater has been on since his water change (A few hours ago) Unfortunatly I broke his thermometer a few days ago during a water change when I dropped it... oops.

But I noticed he was acting SUPER lethargic. I felt the water and it was warm... like as warm as the water in a warm shower. I felt the water in the 10 gal tank above his that according to the thermometer is 81 degrees. Well, that 81 degree tank felt FREEZING compared to Velvets! I'm guessing the temps got in the high 80s or 90s. I'm no longer using this heater.

It was an adjustable 25 watt... it is cheap now that I think about it. According to the thermometer 25 degrees celcius is equal to 85 degrees F. I'm keeping his heater off and it's hopefully cooling down, Velvet's just laying on the bottom. That's what I expect for using a cheap heater... As you may have noticed by now I write alot Lol.
