- Empty aquarium completely and thoroughly dry glass.
- Carefully remove all old silicone with a single edge razor blade. If water is trapped between glass, you can use a hair dryer to blow the water out with cool air.
- Thoroughly wipe the area to be sealed with rubbing alcohol and let glass completely dry.
- Apply sealant so it evenly contacts both glass surfaces.
- For a smooth seal, hold at a 45 degree angle and apply pushing sealant ahead of tube.
- To achieve a final smooth seal, use a flat tool and a dry paper towel to remove excess sealant within five minutes. Any additional excess on the glass can be trimmed after 24 hours, but be sure not to cut into the seal.
- When finished, recap tube immediately. To ensure a leak-proof seal allow 48 hours before filling aquarium with water.
It depends on the type of fish you have!
Discus, wild caught angelfish, uaru and certain other fish that are found at or near the equator do better at temperatures between 84° and 88° F.
Betta fish thrive best in water temperatures between 76° and 85° F.
Most tropical fish prefer temperatures ranging from 76° to 80° F.
Goldfish, koi and other coldwater fish prefer the temperatures be between 65° and 72° F.
No, simply seeing condensation inside your Aqueon Glass Adjustable Heater does not that it is broken or defective.
Check that the heater is working properly by using a thermometer with your fish tank. (also make sure that the water is the right temperature for the type of fish that you have inside your fish tank)
The reason you may see condensation is because humidity was in the air and trapped inside the tube when it was manufactured and sealed. Your heater is still able to perform properly with this condensation.
