  • Forgot to plug in

    I did a waterchange in my Angel pairs tank. Forgot to plug the heater back in when I was done. Now their water is 75. I'm glad they're healthy and tough. Anybody else forget to plug their heater in?

    I do sometimes. Normally I just take the heater off the wall and lay it on the bottom of the tank as I do a WC. That way I don't have to worry about crawling under my stand to turn it off.

      so many times. I currently have my heater unplug in my main tank for the past two months. The water temp has been constant at 80 degrees, I'm thinking my UV sterilizer has been warming the water up plus the warm summer weather.

      Our temp is dropping in two days which the heater will be plugged back on.

        Well, it gets in to the 30's here, at night. I'm glad my Angel tank is in an interior room with no windows.

          I forgot so many times that every tank now has a power strip. I turn everything off or on with a single switch. With no lights or filter noise it is much easier to know when I've seen forgotten.

            This is why I try not to unplug stuff in my tanks other than light fixtures. If I do, I end up trying to remember to leave the lid to the aquarium open to remind me something is going on.

              I never unplug my heaters unless i do my 50 percent water change. Im just very careful around my heaters. Is there a reason you guys unplug your heaters when doing a water change. Just wondering

                I do 50% or larger water changes. And have ruined my heaters by exposing the to air while plugged in. One even exploded on me.....took years to remove all the glass shards. After that event I started using power strips. Now I simply turn off the strip. And when finished with the maintenance I simply turn the strip back on. I haven't forgotten once with this routine. With no filtration, no lighting, no air, no water current, it is very obvious.
