Aqueon Power Filter

I just got a new 14 gallon aquarium to hold my fry and it came with an Aqueon Power Filter. When I was setting the filter up I noticed that the electrical cord begins on the side of the filter that touches water. I looked at the picture shown in the directions and it showed part of the electrical cord submerged. This just seemed a little dangerous to me. Is it ok to have the beginning of the cord submerged or should I just keep the water level lower in the tank so the water doesn't touch the cord?

Aqueon filters are the old Marineland filters. They, along with some other companies, banded to gether to form a new group. Most motor units on power filters are sealed. I think you should be ok.

I remember Bettababy is giving some of the Aqueon products a trial and so far, she is giving them a thumbs up.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
