Wow, thanks for posting this.

If you guys have one of these, you may want to remove it from your tanks. Here is a quote from the site

Quote:
Incidents/Injuries: United Pet Group has received 38 reports of fires resulting in property damage and 45 reports of broken aquarium glass. United Pet Group has received one report of a consumer who suffered an eye injury when the aquarium heater forcefully broke while he held it.

crapcrapcrapcrapcrap and all the other things I'm not allowed to say on this forum!

I've got 4 of these heaters right now and two of them are in my spawning tanks. I'm going to call right now and see if they'll let me exchange them at the pet store.

Damn! I have these in all my betta tanks. :/ And Huey's tank too. AND my 16 gallon. I guess I'll just have to replace them myself and seek compensation after. Off I go to Petco. 5 heaters x 25 bucks. My husband is grumbling and saying "No more fish tanks!" :/

maybe try talking to someone at the pet store and see if they know about it and can do something for you?

I don't have enough cash to buy 4 new heaters. I'm about to run to petsmart to see if they'll let me trade them in.

I know how much it sucks! When my son's crib was recalled we had to scramble to get $$ back on it and buy something new for him to sleep in by the end of the day!
