glass heater tend to burst/break/crack more than Stealth.

i keep big fish, with a glass heater its not so safe.

i got a glass heater that i use for my 55 gallon, a 250 watt ... i set it at 72 and it still goes up to 82. the light on the heater keep lighing up.

I have used glass heaters for the last three years and have yet to have a problem with them. Only up until a few weeks ago did I switch the one on my 20g out, but that was because it was a 150w and I wanted to downgrade to a 100w, so I chose a Stealth Pro. If they are withholding shipments, there is more than likely a design flaw in the newer models. Not discouraging you from buying, just be careful and watch them closely, so far I've had no problems, and I hope I don't.

Any questions? Feel free to PM me.
