Pugman tank closed
Pugman's tank seams gave out due to algae /moss growth in-between the silicone and glass. He gave up the hobby and broke the glass tank and chopped up the wooden stand, I think it was carved into pieces and thrown into trash can. Well, please don't lose hope. Things like this happen in this hobby again and again. When one starts a tank, then that's the only way it end's up. The great creative failures. Pugman closed the tank and retired from the hobby. Moreover, he said he gave up the hobby the day he threw those small black lava stone on the nice looking huge rocks as fillers. As soon as this was done the whole tank started looking like crap. Before he closed, there were atleast 300 scratches on that soft iron free glass.
Fellow hobbyists, please don't give up.

I use 2 - 300 watters these days, one frys, I have a back up till the new one shows up. They are titaniums, but I had Ehiem's in there, they have long been my preferred heater.
If you need to raise the temp say 15 F, vs say 4 F, BIG difference, so ambient temps make a large difference in how you rate things, same issue and even more so with chillers and pull down temp requirements.
It's 68F in the winter at our place and the temp is 84F in the 180 due to the cards......open top, wet/dry filter......
This is the Largest electrical cost for most aquarist also, (heating all that water). Sometimes if you have a few tanks, heating one room is cheaper.
So I rate them depending on the pull up temperature. 300 Gallons? Sure, if the temp is only a few degrees different. 100 Gallon in a cold room? Likely okay.

Eheim claims that, but it's not been my experience, also, you need more heater if you use a wet/dry and/or an open top, there's more transfer or warmer water out.
They are good heaters, but I'd add another if you are pushing above 82F.
This is a non issue right now and till maybe Nov.

|Pugman||No I don't. I was thinking of drilling a hole in it to view the indicator light.|

|Pugman||I had some cyanoacrylate glue in my refrigerator left over from my reef tank and thought of " fragging" some moss. I have noticed that when I break up the mini pella it does grow a little faster. The pieces I have currently are growing into little mound shapes and I'd like to see it grow more uniformly flat. So I pulled out some pieces that were on the floor and growing in odd place and went for an experiment. I'll post the progress as it folds out.|
