Hi everyone...

I recently purchased a Hydor Theo 25w heater for my nano tank and noticed that when the heater turns on there's a light that start FLICKERING.

I'm not sure if that's normal or if it's a defect or what? My temperature is being kept stable though, even late night when the ambient temp is 10 degrees cooler.

Should I be worried or let it go?

Here's a video of the light... looks like a small flame like a flickering candle light or something..LOL

Well with a little perseverance and self initiative, I found this out from Hydor by emailing them.. So this may be useful for those of you that own a Hydor Theo and run into this problem:

"The LED should not flicker. If the unit is brand new, I would exchange it just to be safe.
