I was thinking a new heater would be a great Christmas gift for my nephew who is without incompetence. I guess I won't be getting this model.

The product description above mentions that it is constructed of 'home-made' steel. My home doesn't usually make steel but...

Aside from the incompetence, what concerns me is that you are not supposed to put your hand in the water while the heater is running? :huh:

One of many strange and disturbing things about the packaging, Fang. As a general rule, I do always unplug everything before sticking my hand in the water though.

REALLY??? Half the time I am up to my armpits in the tank water!!!! I NEVER unplug the equipment...unless I am removing it to be cleaning or something!!! Often I see something knocked over...or I just want to move something...I just do it. If I turned everything off each time it might be shut down MORE than running!!!!! :hmm

I even have a dish towel that I keep next to the tank for drying my arm!!!

Really. I always unplug everything. There have been a few shocking incidents on the forum so I always unplug.

The proofreader in me is going nuts right about now. "Persons without incompetence"? "Immerged"? :rofl

The only time I turn the heater off is during a water change, to prevent it from smoking. I stick my hands in the tank all the time, including 3 times a day to feed my fish, and never turn the heater off to do this.

I have high electrical charge (this is apparently a thing; I looked into it after I realized how many times per day I was getting shocked at work), but have never been shocked from my aquarium. Electrical shock in an aquarium is actually mentioned in the Johnson and Hess book, but I can't recall the cause or treatment.

Well, it could have been worse. Impatience. Impotence. Incontinence...
