Which way do you place your heater?

  • Out of habit in dealing with older heaters that weren’t fully submersible - I’ve always placed all of my heaters vertical in my tanks (preferably close to the intake or outlet of my filter(s)).

  • Being someone that has never needed to use a heater I haven't needed to place one in any position but if I was to have a heater that I needed to place, I would definitely place it horizontal rather than vertical mainly because it just looks better horizontal and it looks as though the heat would reach more areas in the water horizontal. I know friends that I have that have used heaters, they always have their heaters horizontal so that must be the norm for most people.
