Just wondering if my heater is still good to use or not, I was doing some tank maintenance and took my heater out to clean but, I was stupid and forgot to unplug it, few minutes later I smell something burning and my heater was burning the towel. The heater is brown on the bottom half, not really too badly burnt or anything, but still wonder if i should by a new one or test this one.

thanks in advance

Get a fluval e heater, best heater you'll ever have.

you can pull it out of the water with out unplugging it and the thing will know and auto shut off. plus it does a lot of other great things no other heater will do in the next 10 years.

ok, well ill get a new heater just to be safe. Those e series heaters look awesome with the automatic shut off, water temp warnings, built in thermometer. A bit out of my price range but might be worth it at 50 bucks. thanks for you opinions:)
