Does anyone have info on using a submersible fish tank heater with wvo?  Has anyone tried this?  I know from my "ds & dd helpers" it heated the water to about 98 deg. & fried our mollies.  I thought I might put it to use in a settling barrel.

It has been tried by several..including myself a long time ago.
There is just not enough available heat to do the job except in the case of very small batches. Say 5-10 gallons.  And I do not recall anyone sticking with the experiment long enough to determine if such a small setup can actually reliably dewater to 300-500ppm.
