I was given an old aquarium heater by a family member, it is a Supreme Heetmaster Mod II. She knew nothing about it, as it was second hand to her as well. I tried reading up on it, couldn't find anything about other than the fact that it is OLD. Click image for larger version

Supreme heaters were the top of the line equipment back when I got into the hobby.
