Hi all I have set up my tank after 5 years been in storage and my heater is very cloudy at the bottom and looks like it’s got condensation in??
I have tested it and it works but is this a warning sign??

These are the best heaters I have found on Chrome:

  • Fluval E Electronic Heater.
  • Hydor In-Line External Aquarium Heater.
  • Eheim Jager Aquarium Thermostat Heater.
  • Tetra HT Submersible Aquarium Heater with Electronic Thermostat.
  • Cobalt Aquatics Neo-Therm Aquarium Heater.
  • Aqueon Pro Adjustable Aquarium Heater.

Get a simple good quality conventional heater. Anything fancy I tried was pants. Expensive pants. I'd buy the Eheim because I know it has a good reputation.

Water or heavy condensation in the heater could indicate failure of the water seal. In that event the heater could explode and this has happened to me once.
