Yes, the stealth heaters have been recalled. Contact the manufacturer and they will send out a replacement.
Bowfront tanks can be glass or acrylic.
How do I tell if mine is glass or acrylic?

If it's glass, you'll see silicone in the corners. If it's acrylic, the edges will actually be melted together to appear seamless.

Ok it feels like a thin layer of silicon between the pieces when I stick my fingernail between them and there is a bead of silicone inside the tank in the corners

I have a bucket full of dead rock and another of sand. One of the bulbs is bad the 65w 420/460
I am taking the light apart cause there isn't a lid on the aquarium and he had salt built up in the light fixture

Ok both bulbs are bad darn

Ok so is this skimmer a good one?
I'm assuming the skimmer hangs on back of tank on outside and one tube on skimmer goes in the square hang on box and the other goes to the top of the pump and the air line with check valve goes on the pump but does it hang outside the tank?

Did it sound like I got a good deal. I'm having to do a lot of work it looks like he drained it and put it up the light was still wet in the box I'm scared to open the bucket with the sand

Might want to reseal the tank. Do you know old the tank is? Wouldn't want 30 gallons on the floor.

The silicone looks good and it isn't very old. I think it is 36 gallons if I measured right. I gotta spend $50 bucks on 2 new bulbs. Will this light assembly support coral and should I buy the 420k or 460 and then the 10k
