Yup, just leave the top black plastic sticking up from the water.
They'll be fine as long as the water covers the bottom three temperature setting lines and the light.

As I said its only one of six that had that failure and it still runs, I use it to warm the water change bucket.


What you end up getting at stores is often the result of someone handling it too hard, shaking it, kids playing with it, someone plugging it in out of the tank and taking it back because it doesn't work and so on.

My local PetSupermarket I caught kids trying to grab and crush fish in the open tanks. Don't think they'd ever been yelled at that loud. (I once worked at a youth prison)

Thanks for the tip! I really like this heater so far...It is not as fancy looking as some..but it gets the job done... It is keeping my fish at a nice toasty 80 degrees.
I would have yelled at those kids too...that is awful!
