8 foot aquarium placement
I was considering getting an 8 foot fowlr aquarium, but the only spot in my house where it would fit is in front of a window and baseboard heater. I keep the blinds on the window closed most of the time, but Iím still concerned about the heater. Do you think it will be a problem?

Put a redirect on the heat flow. Should be ok with that.

Is the baseboard heater a long hot water wall unit, or a forced hot air vent? If it is a hot water baseboard heater, I don't think I would want a tank up against it. It will push the tank off the wall and you really can't shut just one of those down. It runs as a system.
