Eheim 2217 and ETH 200w inline heater?

I just setup my 40 breeder last night. I put the ETH 200w on the output of the 2217 and set the temp to 85 (I'm doing a fishless cycle). The filter has been running since last night, but I dont feel any change in temperature yet. I hear the heater clicking on and off, but so far, I havent noticed any difference. How long should it take to start heating the tank? When should I think I have a problem?

Hey I have a 55 g fish tank with a 200w heater. S
When I first set up my tank it took about 8 hrs to fully heat up. What's your room temperature?

Then it should be heating fine what u should do is switch the heater on in the tank and feel if the heater gets warm. If it doesn't ask for another 1 if it does then I can't see quad wrong. Hope I'm helping

Oh ok I looked it up and I see how it works. Can't u just go to the shop and say
Can I swop this for an internal heater or did it come with your filter. If they say no just buy a 200w internal heater they work great.

I dont want all those tubes and sticks in my tank...I dont want to see anything. I bought a in-line heater and a in-line co2 reactor. I have the spray bar for my filter mounted on the black rim so you cant see it and I have the water level over it so you cant hear it. This is off topic though...

I need to know if anyone else has had similar issues with the ETH 200w.

No, I contacted the person I got it from on eBay and he sent me a new one. I put it on the line this morning so I guess I'll know by tomorrow if this one is gonna work
