So people should spend extra cash for an item which is essentially a thermostat and does what the heaters should already be doing???
sounds like the heater manufacturers need to go back to the drawing board.
Had the same happen to me a long time ago, lost a lot of nice large fish. Out of 8 only a snowflake eel, a lionfish and an orbic bat survived.
and it was an ebo-jager heater now that I think of it, temps hit 94.
I'm wondering if I'm even going to need a heater for my 30 gallon. I live in So. Cal and the temp stays about 78-82 for the most part with only a 2 degree difference from the night and hottest part of the day.
When it gets colder I'm thinking using my pump as a submersible may be enough heat to keep it stable.
