I just discovered that my heater shattered.

It was a cheap Chinese one.

My hornwort in the aquarium had been shedding hardcore. I wonder if this is why.

I just unplugged it and got as much out as I could.

What nasty things were inside it?

It's best to buy heaters with emergency shut offs that automatically happen if its no longer submerged. The eheim Jagar seems to be a well praised non breaking brand, I use it exclusively now, great heater.

What are the alternatives to glass heaters?

I have one fancy glass one with a shield and auto-cut off and digital readings, etc ... but my smaller tanks all have the old gladd variety.
