i have recently encountered where p's get frightened and bang everything...my fix will be a pvc pipe with multiple holes. No breaking of heater or no burns on fish anymore


Have not done this, but i'm going to do it. btw i have a ebo jager (or whatever its called) and it is submerged, i don't know about any others.

try to buy submersible just because if your heater ever does fall into the tank completely, you know you'll be safe from any mishaps. when it comes down to titanium or glass, you should be fine with either. like grosse said, the via aqua titanium heaters have temp. adjustment controls seperate from the heating tube and they can withstand aggressive fish. if you have a glass heater, buy the heater guards made for hagen tronic heaters. they will fit most glass heaters, i personally use it and have no complaints.

they sell heater armour, like a black plastic that fits around you heater, it has gaps and stuff in it, the the water gets to the heater. it actually looks pretty cool. it also claims to help prevent heater burn.
Where did you get heater covers?

Hey,
The funny thing is that any heater I've ever seen or purchased, that said "submersable", has a stamp on the heater stating not to submerge beyond a certain point....I have done so anyway with no problem and I suspect it's because ULC, in Canada, won't certify the heaters for retail if allowed to sit under water.
I haven't seen any heater yet, sold in Ontario that says you can leave it fully submerged, once you read the warranty and instructions.


Any Canucks out there that know any different, I'd like to hear from you.
