Hey since it's gotten colder I can't get my 14g biocube to warm up. Woke up this morning and it's at 72 degrees I've tried putting two heaters in and everything. It is opened top so all water is exposed to air. Also have a 10g refugium underneath. I put the heater in my dads 29g cube and it heats right up.. Can't figure it out! I pulled both heaters out and touched to make sure they work and they get really hot before i have to let go.
Any thoughts? I'll probably just go get a new nicer heater today and see if that does anything..

I would try sticking it in the refugium underneath(Sorry don't know if you tried that already) That way it will keep the water coming through at the temperature that you want and will send it back to the tank at that temperature.

What are you using to read the temperature?

I'm using a digital thermometer with a probe and also a regular type with the red that goes up and down(cant remember what it's called) they both read similar.
I've also tried moving it all Different places, sump and everything. Mystery!
