Heater question...

I just set my 5 g tank up and when I plugged the heater in, the light didn't turn on. Its an Aqueon 50w submersible. The directions said to submerge it for 30 mins before plugging in, so I did that.

Am I missing something here, or is this heater just broken? There's not some hidden on switch?

Thanks!

Did you turn the temp dial up & see if the light comes on? If the water is the temp the heater is set on then the light won't come on, it only comes on when the heater is heating.

Thanks. I think its supposed to be green when its not heating, and red when its heating. But I'll try that.

Hmm, your Aqueon must be different than mine. Mine only has one light & its only on when the heater is heating. In any case, glad its working.
