    I like the way you can tell the water temp at a glance. Say you set the Cobalt to 76*. If the water temp is the same as your set temp then the LED light (green) will be solid on the 76* marking. If the water temp drops down to say 74* then the 76* will be solid green AND the 74 will blink yellow. If the water temp goes above the set temp , say 78* then the 78 mark will blink green and your set temp stays solid green.
    I also had an issue with one of my Cobalts (I have 5) last year and the company did the same thing as with Sue (cut the cord and discard and sent out a new replacement). No questions, no hassle.

    Sil and RG, thanks to both of you for you input and I'm glad to hear so many are pleased with these heaters and the service behind them. I can calibrate the Eheim heaters ok but they often go out of calibration and need to be reset, they can be very frustrating to work with. Seems to me that the Eheims are good for a fairly inexpensive back up but that's about it. After hearing a few negative stories about the new Eheims here recently, I think it might be time to give the Neotherms a try. Again, thanks to everyone for your opinions and assessments.

    As Sil said, the lights are always yellow or green when working properly. When this one failed the light was very red and stuck at 94 or 96. A danger sign for sure because the heater was heating - it was warm after 2 days of being off completely when I took it out.

    I always liked the Aqueon Pro heater before but the black #'s on a black background made them difficult to see (impossible when in the tank). And often with them I would have to set them a little higher than the temp I actually wanted. I had the Eiheim too, and could never properly calibrate that thing.

    In looking around the Cobalt site, they have a nice small canister too (for <55g tanks) that looks like even I could manage if I someday wanted to try one. I don't, but it looked OK for the price.

    The beauty and convenience of keeping cold water fish -- NO heater required! I remember when I used to keep freshwater tropicals in the 1970s and 80s. I had heaters then, and they were a pain to work with. If I ever decide to go tropical again, thanks to this thread, I'll know which brand of heater to avoid ...

    Even cold water fish only like it so cold, though

    Right! And I don't plan to put any of mine on ice -- yet! LOL!

    Indoors, it still stays pretty warm at our place. It's a log house, and holds the heat well.

    No power again. This was a really heavy wet snow. The guys shoveling my walk and stairs said there were trees down all along the street outside my complex. I’ve unplugged all my power strips this time so I don’t lose another heater.

    Oh heck, we're fine. All we got was light, fluffy stuff...hmmm, around 6" so far. 1,600 without power around the State but we're fine. Thanks for your concern though Matt.

    Hang in there Sue, I hope your power is restored ASAP.
