I always unplug everything when I clean my tanks. Each tank has its own surge protector and I unplug it to kill the power to everything. I don't want to get shocked or lose any equipment. :)

As Kathy said, it is something that is very easy to forget.

I have one of those "stealth" heaters in my tropical tank for the very same reason. I had gotten tired of having to unplug my glass heater every time I needed to do a water change, plus the thermostat had gone out, leaving the heater always on. So when I went shopping for a replacement, I picked up one of the stealth heaters after being it being recommended by other members here on Koko's
