    The blue 'stuff' you describe is just the inner works of the heater, small pieces of plastic and metal from the internal element core. Aquarium heaters don't contain any harmful substances, just electronic circuitry and a metallic coil which heats the water when an electric current is passed through it; very much like an electric radiator.
