I have a stealth too, no problems with it. actually it works pretty great. Lots of things could of happened to make that tank explode, one could of been the filter flow(how strong it was and where it was facing) That happened to our tank at work the filter was facing the glass and it was a strong flow, eventually over time it made the tank weak and eventually exploded...water and glass everywhere.

I bought a 10 watt marineland stealth for Teal's kritter keeper. I havent opened the package yet but I'm debating on exchanging it after reading that thread.

I love my Stealth...works great. Though it gets a little high sometimes but other than that it works great.

I'm not worried it'll crack my tank...I use 66 quart plastic tubs now a days :)

I've never had any problems with my Marineland stealth visitherm. I got a 10 watt Marineland for a 2.5 gallon critter keeper and it heated the darn thing to 86 degrees!

Mine goes from 86*-89* usually. I don't mind and neither do the fry. I think the temps is the reason they're getting so big.

I say get it, and test it, if it gets too high for you swap it for a different one.

AH!! Alexander has a marineland heater O.o It's not that bad,But when I first got it,it worked very well! Now it heats up alot more than it should..so,now I keep the dial on 72 degrees which STILL heats the tank from 80-82 degrees...so far I haven't had any other issues with it....

I think it would be fine if it was in a 3 gallon or larger.
