Heater malfunction

So yesterday I came home to discover that my heater sensor went out causing my tank to rise to 96 degrees. So far I have lost a chromis, my large one armed arrow crab, and a camel shrimp. Hopefully I won't come home to any more deaths. I'm really worried about my anemone. It was very in responsive last night but my clown still slept in it so I'm hoping for the best.

I don't remember the name. I'll look when I get home. It came with the tank from the LFS. I put in my old ebo jager 200 watt. I won't lie, I'm at work and all I'm thinking about is whether or not my tank is okay.

I would feel the same. Its scary knowing theres something wrong with your tank and you can't be there to help fix it. If the temp is still high when you get home, you can add ice to a ziplock bag and leave it in the tank for awhile to bring the temp down.
