So yesterday I noticed that my heater in Strawberry's tank rose to 82F. "Oh, whatever", I thought. Not a big deal, but I turned it down a notch since I usually like the water to stay between 78 and 80. So today I come home from work and hop on downstairs to check on Strawberry. I was shocked to see it was at 92F D:
I mean, how could it rise more when I turned it down? It's so weird. And it doesn't have anything to do with the room temperature since the tank is in the basement and it always stays the same temp!
Anyways, so I immediately unplugged it and am just waiting for it to go down to 78.
I feel so dumb too.....I should've sent the warranty slip in the mail right away....for all three of the heaters too! But I don't have the receipts for any of them now Dx
I really hope it's not broken for good.
Oh, and would this have hurt the fish? I feel really bad that he's been in that warm of water for almost 24hrs :c
