Is this ok? Sorry to sound silly.
That applies to internal filters which used powerheads. I should have been more specific. Internal filters with powerheads should be submerged. There are other types of filters that don't need submersion.:)

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.

by filter, they mean the whole unit. there are internal filters that are completely underwater. the whole thing minus the power cord. there are also external filters that usually hang off the back of the tank. there will be a n intake tube that goes into the water taht sucks up the water in the tank.
