I have a heavily planted 49 gal. bow front tank, looks like the heater had

I think the moral is to use two heaters (perhaps smaller-sized) in any
large or important tank. In large tanks two or more heaters may be a
necessity to maintain the desired temperature. They usually provide more
stable, even heating. And in all cases you have heat in the case that one
heater breaks. Since you said "the heater", I assume you had just one.
