Angry shocker for me

when i installed my trust worthy heater, it failed me. the temp rose over 100 degrees and almost cooked my fis. i noticed him acting strange and when i put my thermometer in.. KABOOOOM! the temp shot up sooo high.
i am shocked that my heater broke.

I have one like that...I threw it in a 2 gallon half filled and set my brine shrimp hatcheries in there...works a lot better.

OMG that's terrible! If I were you I'd transfer your fish to cooler water right away! But, I'm guessing that you either already have or that he's recovering and the waters cooled down.

have you ever moved your hand from a bucket of hot water into a bucket of cold water? it doesnt feel so nice. now imagine being fully immersed in a pool of hot water then suddenly thrown into a pool of cold water. if your tank is over heating like that, cup the betta and let his sit out in the cup until it cools to the approximate temperature of the tank you are moving him to, then do the full acclimation. if you just plop him in a cooler tank he will go into shock.

Yeah, what nomoretickets said. Dramatic temperature changes are bad ideas, especially since they are cold blooded. Just as a sudden increase is dangerous, so is putting him in cooler water.

Shame to hear about your heater, though. What type was it?
