Think I found the issue.... It was shorting as I pulled it out the water.... Since this is a "G" rated forum, I won't express the words I used as I touched the water when it shorted....Lol..... Heater was in the sump, but I'm sure the short was making it to the tank... Thank goodness I still have my old heater for the 75g I use to have. I'll be keeping an eye on the rest of the fish.

Glad at least that you found the probable cause.
They cost a few dollars more,but you might want to consider getting one the Titanium heaters.I had a glass heater short on me to.Also with the Titanium heaters,you can adjust the heater without having to stick your hand in the water.

Def go titanium. I was scoping out the jbj digital ones, they come with a remote digital controller you can mount in your stand or wherever you want

Yes I've been told they have significantly lower failure rates, plus supposedly more accurate
