Hagen Radiant heaters suck purple donuts

I've had it with Radiant heaters and will NEVER buy another. I had two of them fail, which is bad but not catastrophic. None of my guys has ever died from being at room temperature.
I have a 10 gallon tank that was currently housing two south american bumble bee jelly catfish. The jet black ones with the very wide heads, and round spatulate fins and big frilly tails, not the reg. bumblebees with the beige stripes. These guys had gotten a little large to be safe in my loach tank, so I set up the 10 for them. The damn Radiant heater malfunctioned on the second night, and boiled both of them to death. I was absolutely horrified, and I am now royally pissed off and will never buy another of their products.
