Angry These heaters...

Aren't working!

I think my 5 gal is cursed or something, lol.

I went and returned the Hydor Theo and got a 25 w Stealth heater from Marineland-the only type they had left.

The tank it only at 74 degrees! I'm starting to wonder if I'm doing something wrong, though how can you mess up a heater? I let it sit there for about 10 minutes, then plugged it in. I did this last night btw, so it's been more than 12 hours since.

So far Renard doesn't seem to have a problem with the temperature. I was floating him in the 10 gal last night, but given the condition of the fish I was iffy to actually put him in. I put him in the 5 gal today and he seems to be loving his new home! Checing out every nook and cranny, and he's so tiny in there!

Have you checked to make sure your outlet is working?

Yes, it works. I mean, it's heating...my room temp is about 68. It just doesn't heat enough.

Well, I turned it up to 82 and moved it, and now the temp is between 75 and 77! Huge relief. Maybe i had postioned it badly. And Renard is so cute, I wish I could take some pictures of him.
