Re: Im going insain hearing a cracking noise from tank
Cracking noises can have a wide range of strange sources, and mine is no less strange. I recently was hearing a cracking noise from one of my tanks, and I thought I had narrowed it down to a defective heater. But, immediately after I upnplugged the heater, I heard the crack again. It was a drip of water running down a light cord into the plug strip. The electrical arc made a cracking noise while my hands were touching it.
Drip loops are something I am paranoid about, but I missed one. The noise was a cracking unlike anything I had ever heard. Check your cords for having proper drip loops, and for drips going directly into the wall plugs.
If I had a nickel for every purchase of tropical fish or supplies,
then I would have more money to purchase tropical fish or supplies.........
