Heater went through the roof:(

It's been a bad day all around. My heater decided to malfunction It didn't shut off, just superheated my tank water! My thermometer reading goes to 86, and I'd guess the water temp was at least 95! The outside glass was warm to the touch. Scooped 6 dead fish out, 3 neons, 2 harliqune rasboras any my clown pleco. All of which I've had for over a year! It just sucks! Though my blackskirts are fine, they seem indestructible.

As man!! That really sucks! I've had that happen before, but luckily it was while I was testing a new (cheap Chinese) heater on an old empty (besides water) tank. It got up past 92*
How old was the heater? Some of them have warrantees on them

It's over 2 years old. It's a Fluval 100w submersible heater.

That's awful. My room mate had a heck of a time when she was using one of the cheaper heaters. It would randomly heat the tank up to 95 ish.
