In another tank I saw the heater placed vertically; is that an acceptable thing for me to do? I would like it to be less apparent...

Otherwise, thanks! I think less gravel makes a huge difference (and there's still quite a bit in there that I'll remove on a more thorough water change) and, admitadely, the black sparkle felt looks good, too.

Looks good. Here's a suggestion. If your heater is fully submersible place it low in the tank horizontally a couple inches above the gravel so that it's less visible.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Thank you! It's fully submersible, and I'd rather have it horizontally. The package didn't say anything for or against that, but I wasn't sure.

I placed my heater the same way near the substrate and horizontially. Also I have some hardscape which is placed some what in front of heater also which helps to make it less noticable.
