When I put my hand in the tank today I feel like I am getting a ever so slight shock. Maybe its just me and I am nuts but is there a way to test what might be shorting out in my tank???? Thanks

What powerheads are you using? The first launch of the Hydor Koralia last Feb/March had an issue with the # 2's and 3's. Could be a heater starting to malfuction or other source. Definately not nuts though. If you feel a slight shock, there is stray current in the tank somewhere.

I am pretty sure I narrowed it down to a heater. Thanks to all for the input. I still would like to put a parameter on them and test each pump as well, but all are new but 2.

I had a slight shock one time in my makeup water strorage tank and I found that my heater had melted my powerhead wire and exposed them to the saltwater. Not good. Now I make sure they stay separated from each other.
