I lost my Tang. community

I woke up the other morning and found all of the fish in my tanganyikan tank,cooked! My heater went bad and malfunctioned the temp was so high that it didn't even register on my thermometer. I'm so depressed.

I can sympathize, I've had it happen with a tank of fry. So sorry for your loss.

Look on the bright side; now you have an excuse to get more fish.
What model was the heater? I recently discovered that the titanium heater in my 30 gallon invert tank crapped out. It didn't cook the tank, but the water is only room temp now. The indicator light still shows that it has power but it's not heating, and turning the temp dial does nothing. It's only a few months old...

Sorry to hear it. I'd get a new heater & some more fish in there pronto so you don't have to do a full cycle.

What kind of heater was it?

Visitherm Stealths seem to be the preferred variety these days.

That's terrible! Sorry about your loss. Just out of curiosity, what kind of heater were you using?

toddnbecka: I'm really surprised to hear that about a titanium heater. They're awfully expensive compared to other kinds. Maybe it is still under warranty.

It was an Ebo Jager, I just picked up a Marineland the other day. I put my Geophagus Bahia Red pair and their fry in the tank along with a few Corys and Ottos, so I am going to try to plant the tank.
