That sucks that you lost your fish. I figure the heater is the one thing we put in out tanks that has the greatest chance of malfunctioning and killing things. Lets face it, no one makes a great, foolproof heater.
Use a temp controller! They are cheap, especially considering how much you might have to spend to replace cooked fish. It's an extra piece of security for equipment that has a high chance of killing.
