They bit the heater enough that it broke, so that their water had no heat. Not exactly eating it but I assume some plastic was eaten. Just wanted to know if it's normal behavior.

How bout a link Randy since the comments move down and I don't see which comment you mean when you say above?

I'll be devils advocate and encourage people to use local/native species that don't need much heating if any (of course I realize that those in cold climates will need heating to keep the water in the greenhouse from freezing in the pipes.)
