The 50W Tetra Submersible heater was the first aquarium heater I used that was purchased back in 2012, and was used for a single betta fish tank. The reason I had bought it was simply because it was one of the cheaper kinds (although this is the kind of decision you cringe about making later). Nonetheless, this is what I think about the 50W Tetra Submersible heater:
Keep tropical fish comfortable with the Tetra Submersible Heater
I have 6 tetras and I have noticed today they have white spots on them, I read in the previous comments that it’s ick and that I need to move the ones with it to a different tank and I have, but how do I raise the temperature slowly because my other tank doesn’t have a heater, I’m worried because 5 of them have it and I am going to get some medicine for them tomorrow but what kind do I get? And how long will my fish last if I don’t get the medicne to them right away?
Much, much appreciated!! -Sarah
Aquarium Heaters: Tetra Submersible Heaters
Immediately, I bought a 2nd school of neons to go in the first tank where the others had lived successfully for two years (well kept). I acclimated them properly but when I put them in there, they began to die almost immediately. I purchased a few from a diff source when I thought things had stabilized but they all died within a week. I suspect neon tetra disease because they were all healthy looking at first. Several of them developed a spot on their side that spread. It was not ich. This was like someone had peeled the color off of the fish and the white spot caved on on the side, causing deformity. This spread through the fish within a few days and many more died. I lost 15 fish total.
