If I find one I'll just have to look the other way!

Woke up this morning and the tank was 67 degrees... I have it set for 78.5. Anyone ever have to add another heater? I got the titanium one in the sump now. Suppose to be good up to 150g...

Does it have a thermostat in it? This happens to me the other day because my heater was set to 65 and I thought it was at 78.(it doesn't have numbers on it) just slowly raise the temp over the next few hours.

That isn't good. I have been a bit concerned over something like that happening to me as well. I plan on adding a second heater once I have a sump. My plan was to have one set where I want it and another just a tad lower. That way, if the one doesn't keep up for some reason the second one will kit in and give it a leg up.

Yeah... It's a jbl. Has digital setting and separate thermostat.

It's slowly raising... I'll add the other thermostat today.

I put the other heater I have for my QT on there. It's on rated for 75g, but it's just to help boost it during the winter. I set it for 76, while the jbj heater in the sump is digitally set at 78.5. Hopefully this will help out. May put the big heater in the tank...

I hate heaters. I've got two in my sump and they still don't hold a stable temp. I've got to invest in a better one. Also I lost 16-20 baby cichlids because the heater stuck on. May turn it into a sw qt.
