I doubt you would see a temperature change unless it was a small tank, and you had 220+ stray volts running through it

If a malfunctioning heater was causing the stray voltage, then I would guess that would be the issue, not the stray current by itself.

I don't exactly consider 220+ to be stray voltage

Lol kind of my point I suppose. A normal "stray voltage" is not going to heat up a tank.
