Re:Emergency question!!

Dear Anna Marie:

You needn’t be concerned about a heater burn this time of year. You’ll want to set your heater to hold at about 72°F for tropical seahorses, and with the summertime heat waves that have been sweeping the country, if you’re heater comes on at all overnight it will be operating only very briefly. Certainly not long enough to cause a burn should one or more of your seahorses perch on it overnight. Wintertime is generally when you may have to worry about the possibility of a heater burn, Anna Marie.

So don’t worry about the lack of a heater guard right now. You should have plenty of time to obtain a heater guard from your LFS or from an online aquarium outlet that will work on your particular heater before the weather gets cold and there is any danger that a heater burn could occur.

Best of luck with your new arrivals, Anna Marie!

Happy Trails!
