"I have Ebo-Jager TS series 250 Watt and it clearly states on the heater "Do not immerse beyond water level" and lower there is "Water Level" line. So I am not submersing it. It works fine."

I sold my Ebo 150 to a friend for cheap, and he bought another 250 watt since he liked it. The 250 watt had the "Do not blah blah" on it regarding the water level. This led to a fight with the LFS about this the other day. They were like, "There has NEVER been an Ebo that was not fully submersible, ever... You do not have an Ebo" and my friend and I were like, "IT SAYS RIGHT ON THE NEW HEATERS NOT TO STICK IT UNDER WATER" We left after a couple minutes of that.

Man, when i received the TS 250 I was kind of shocked to see how huge that thing was - it was 17" long!!! I could barely fit it into my 55 gallon tank, and I had to tilt it so it'll fit and not touch the gravel. this thing is great! it only comes up for 20-30 sec at a time and not very frequently. The temp is at rock solid 77. I like it.

I'm happy to shell out for a good heater. The first tank I had I skimped on the heater and always regretted it. It's one of the most important pieces for the wellbeing of the fish.

I love the fishes cause they're so delicious.

Get a Titanium Heater (Is it really by Titanium?), then you shouldn't worry about breaking But I prefer get some Visi-Therm from Marineland, they do fine, order it off bigalsonline.com or petsolutions.com unless you want to pay triple the prices at your LFS
