No, as long as it’s under water it shouldn’t get hot enough to harm a fish. Even if it did, they’d get off.

i wouldnt worry my nerites are always on my heater especially if it has algae growing on it and they havent gotten hurt. heaters never get hot enough to hurt the fish unless there is something wrong with it

Thanks, guys. I didn't think there would be an issue. I saw a snail on it a month or two ago and I took him off thinking it would burn it. I was more worried about how slow he moves.... if it got too hot it'd take him days to get off it!!!! But I guess it doesn't get that hot!

Thanks!

I must be a wimp because I’ve touched heaters that had been on for a while before and I thought it was hot, too hot to suck on for sure.
