I guess the Kent Carbon should be added to this since there has been so much talk about it. Beware of bad batches of kent carbon. Google it. Happy Reefing =]

What do I do I lost like $2000 g because of them . At this point I doubt I get my money back but as long as I'm around I'm gonna make sure no one buys a thing from them til they go out of biz.

I would contact them, they may reimburse you for your lost, especially if they has a problem with their product and they had to recall it. It mayn't be for the full amount, as they may cap it, but you may get something.

Another reminder folks. We just had another member lose most of his tank due to one of the Stealth heaters

People have said to me," I've had mine for years, it works fine".

No, it doesn't.

Please get these out of your tank if you still have one!

Thanks for the heads up Duke. Just checked mine and I'm good.
This thread was a great idea.

Thanks Kathy. I have 2 heaters in my 120 sump - 1 being a 250 watt stealth pro. The heater was not operational even though the light was on. My temps were ok as the other 300 watt heater compensated. Im glad it just shut down & didnt go the other way & cook the tank. I called Marineland & they are sending me a $28 check upon receipt of the defective heater. I dont know how I missed this thread. Thanks again!!!!!!!
