COMMON PROBLEMS WITH HEATING IN SALTWATER TANKS
If you are not able to remedy the problem you are experiencing with your aquarium heater your only option may be to replace it entirely. While you may be concerned about the cost of this necessity, you should think about it as an opportunity to improve your tank. Take this chance to invest in a high-quality heater that is rated for your particular tank size so you do not have problems in the future with uneven heat distribution or temperature fluctuation – you may even want to purchase a larger heater than you need in case you decide to upgrade to a larger tank at some point. You should also consider whether you want to purchase a hang-on, submersible or in-line heater. Hang-on heaters are very easy to use but submersible heaters often offer better heat distribution. In-line heaters are a great option for saltwater tanks because they can be installed in a sump system and will keep the temperature in your tank even. Before purchasing a new heater, do a little research to see what your options are and what model might best suit your needs.
