Exploding Marine Stealth Pro aquarium heater, a do it yourself (DIY) fish tank project run amuck. Have been recalled.

this could be why i think in this cause he should have let the heater cool before taking it out of the tank

Good luck getting petsmart to replace them. I called today to see about replacing my 50w and 300w. They said that only 100-250w stealth pro's were recalled, and that there was no way they would replace mine without a receipt. I guess i'll be making a call to marineland.

Problem is, what are they going to replace them with? The cheaper glass visi-therms that haven't been recalled for exploding, but aren't any better as far as reliability in general?

true or you could ask for a refund or a gift card instead

petsmart is replacing them with aqueons... I have one and its a great heater... marineland is apparently sending checks. I wont use a glass heater, so aqueons will be what I replace them with.

Marineland didn't give an option- they are sending refund checks (for how much???).

I bought an Aqueon that is similar in construction to the StealthPro- plastic submersible.
