Clean it the vinegar and a sponge. Then maybe fill it with Tap water and run you power head in it and see if it does it again?

Mine gets dirty but it doesn’t smell like burnt plastic. That would lean me towards a bad pump or heater.

Someone on FB also suggested bad pump. I’ve pulled them both out and they’re soaking in vinegar. I’ll take them apart and see if there is damage.

I'm about done with hydor koralias for reef tanks. Two of mine won't spin in the right direction or won't even start without a twist then the power fades away. Cleaned thoroughly, no luck. They are a couple of years old.

I have ecotech in my tank. Thank god. I couldn’t imagine the horror of coming home to my tank covered in the Exxon Mobil spill. .
