Is that the only thing you have moving water ? Do you have a filter or an air stone ?Put that on and get a new power head on ... How long has it been out ? What size tank do you have ? how many fish are in your tank , how old is your tank ? I would do a large 30-50% water change ...Sounds like more than a power head issue ? what are your perameters
Ammonia
nitrIte
NitrAte

I agree with sadie as I would do a large size PWC and then post your water test. I would also make sure you have some flow going in there. Hope all goes well. I`m going to move this thread to proper forum.

Sounds like an electrical charge in the tank . I recommend a grounding probe and a voltmeter to eleminate the suspect then use the grounding probe as a precaution should something else go down... it is for your safety as well as the fish ... salt water is an excellent conductor of electrical current . I agree replace the power head ASAP
