Yes, can position in angle. sunction cup should stick to acrylic as esily on glass as long as clean surface.
Long time ago before submersible heaters were available, i used to use one that clips on the rim. I have broken few heater cause did not unplug and also fish came down w/ cold when i forget to plug the heater after the water changes.

Off the topic.
Asapects, what kind of fish is that?

it will stick to the acfrylic fine. just put it as close to the bottom as you can without touching the substrate and angle it as much as possible

I think the manufacturers say to unplug the heater during maintenance for safety reasons...so you don't get shocked if the heater shorts out while you have your hands in the tank.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
55 Gallon - Polleni Tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - QT
75 Gallon coming soon!
