Dies it matter where in the tank you position a heater?
Can it be horizontal on the back wall of the tank behind plants?
I mount my heaters horizontal, near the bottom, and in a high flow area.
Makes no difference where it goes unless you have very poor circulation in the tank.
I mount athe bottom so I don't blow any more heaters up
Hahaha yes if you don't turn off the heaters when you change the water then I guess it does matter. I use a powerstrip for the filters (and heaters back when I used them) so I can just turn everything off and on with the flick of a switch.
I meant thermally it doesn't matter. One can easily find out for themselves if it matters in their tank by using a thermometer :-)
since that incident I also have gone to a switched power strip.. seeing as the filter has to be shut off as well so it wont loose it;s prime or be run dry...
