The official recall notice simply says to contact Marineland.

Everyone knows you are not supposed to take them out of water before unplugging them.

I had a 250w stealth and they would eather replace it or give me a refund. The refund would've been only $15. Ridiculous IMO. So I opted for a replacement

So is this the one? I can't remember exactly what I have...I don't feel like removing it since it's surrounded by plants.

So for those that don't like to click links and actually read, they're recalling not only the Stealth Pro, but the old Stealth's also... the ones with just the red knob and no LED. The old Stealth models under recall start with "ETP" and include all sizes from 25W and higher.

I checked the old-style Stealth in my water storage tub, and it's an "ETP" model, and it's probably at least 3 years old.

So I take back all I said about the old Stealths not being recalled. Get rid of 'em.
Ah, I guess it is then! YIKES! Is it a hassle to go through the process? Since it's only for a 10g I may just buy a new one on my own.

Incorrect.

The Visitherm heaters - which are the glass ones - are NOT effected by the recall. While they might not be the most accurate (but then, what heater is?!), they're at least safe and have been around for ages.
