Those are visitherm stealths... the composite material. The regular visitherms are glass.

Ah-ha! Okay, thanks for clearing that up. SO, should I get rid of it?

Yes... sorry - me saying "Visitherms" didn't really clear that up, did it?!

Originally, there were just the Visitherms. They were glass. These have been around for years and years. Then there were Visitherm Stealths. Those were the non-glass, solid black ones. Then came the Visitherm Stealth Pros, which were the non-glass, solid black ones with the LED indicator light on the temperature knob.

I just brought my stealth pro back to the lfs I got it from, glad I did now too, because they said I only had till the 26th to do it. Got a full refund but immediatily used it for a new Fluval 200 watt heater!

No-one around here is taking them back. PetCo and Petsmart both have signs up saying to contact Marineland.

I called Marineland yesterday (maybe my petsmart would have taken it, didn't try) and they asked which version I have (pro) and the wattage (can't remember exactly but it was a smaller one) and asked whether I wanted a refund or replacement. Since I already purchased a replacement (not a marine land lol) to get the defective one out of my tank, I said I wanted a refund. The rep said ok, told me how much I would get, asked for my name, address, email and said they would email me a shipping label in a couple of days.

Really? They told me I'm getting $22.90 for mine. Forget what size watts though but it was a smaller size but a pro version.

Apparently, they treat folks in different states differently- I was never even offered a replacement. They dispatched FedEx to pick up my heater, but FedEx stinks around here and never made the pick-up. Was told then to just mail the heater and enclose receipt for shipping and would get a check that added shipping cost. No clue how much thy are reimbursing.

I have the 100 watt and I'll be keeping it. It's in my QT and has been going strong for months. My glass fluval heater blew up on me when it got 1/4" under submerged for about 5 minutes O_O
