Hi guys,

I'm in the middle of upgrading my tank and i took the old heater from the old tank and had it dry for a day (i put a spare in the old tank). I put it in the new tank and let it sit for an hour in the water and turned it on. The water was significantly colder than the temperature i had the heater set to and i noticed as soon as i plugged it in that the inside of the heater glass turned frosty.

It slowly went away as it heated but now i'm noticing that at the bottom of the heater there is miniscule water droplets staying on the glass... the only thing differently i did was put it horizontal and it's always been vertical. I've taken the heater out of the other tank multiple times and this hasn't happened.

What gives? Is this a piece of junk now? I just got this heater in November. Is there a risk in keeping heaters horizontally in tanks?

Refer to the directions/google it. Some heaters are upright, some are either.
It should be able to be placed horizontally or vertically from what I've found.

Edit: The condensation seems to be slowly going away. Not entirely sure if i should take it out or not now..
