Not my tank but......... my mom called me today sounding upset. She lost a silver dollar and a clown loach today due to a heater malfunction. Water got too hot, heater never kicked off. Its a tetra heater that they sell at walmart that are preset at 78. Man, I thought them things were cheap till I started looking around online for heaters. Well I guess they are cheap, cheap made. Makes me feel bad because its the heater that I had bought for my tank 1 yr ago and give it to her cause I was no longer using it. DON'T SKIMP ON PRODUCTS YOUR FISH DEPEND ON! DON'T DO IT, ITS NOT WORTH IT. Sorry lol, I guess after learning your lesson, you can't stress this enough!

Just did a 50% on my 75g African Cichlid tank. I'm shot so the BC29 will have to wait until tomorrow. Water is here and the heater and power head are working as we speak so it will be ready to go tomorrow when I'm ready lol
