 Hi  Rahul:
 
 I  had  a  similar  experience  some  time  back.  I  had  borrowed  a  heater  for  my  Hospital  Tank  from  a  friend  of  mine.  This  heater  he  hadn't  been  using  since  sometime.
 
 I  set  it  up  and  left  Orandas  for  treatment.  Within  two  hours  I  saw  water  boiling.  I  was  fortunate  enough  to  get  back  home  in  time  and  save  them.
 
 I  learnt  a  BIG  lesson:  Never  BUY/USE  old  aqua  equipments.
 
 Bye,
 ___

 How  small  was  the  tank  ?  and  how  big  was  the  wattage  of  the  heater?
 
 
 As  long  as  the  water  volume  in  liters  exceeds  the  heater  wattage,  you  will  not  have  this  problem  as  it  will  take  a  atleast  12  hrs  +  for  the  water  temparature  to  get  to  even  about  35  Deg  C.
 
 I  once  added  a  25  watt  heater  to  a  bucket  with  5  liters  of  water  and  fish.
 After  6  hrs  the  water  was  35  Deg  C,  the  fish  were  fine(  I  had  added  ich  medication  to  this  bucket)  and  never  again  in  their  life  got  ich.  :lol:
