Tingling cut aquarium heater

I have a plastic barrel tank with a 200W heater and a cut on my hand tingles when in the water (Does not tingle with heater unplugged)

I then went to test this heater in another glass tank and there was no tingling sensation.
I tried a different heater in the original plastic barrel and there was no tingling sensation. It only happens when i use the first heater and only in that plastic barrel. Does it have something to do with plastic and being high wattage?

Also, I have GFCI on all my outlets,why are they not tripping?

I'll probably toss this heater anyways as they arent expensive to replace, just trying to understand why it only seems to leak/tingle my cut when used in the plastic barrel.
