heater position

Postby dekker » 2008-10-22 19:47

hi all

i have been looking at other fish keepers tanks and i noticed some people have there heater vertical and others horizontal, so i was just wondering which was most efficient i.e best distribution of heat. :)

Horizontal.

If the heater is vertical, you can sometimes get the freshly heated water rising straight up and thus cause the heater to switch off when the large portion of the water is much cooler then that surrounding the heater. I also make sure that an outlet from the pump is very close to the heater so that the water gets circulated well.

Now that I have a bit of time for a longer reply.. That's my preferred way of doing it, but some people go only for vertical as some heaters have a "maximum" water level mark although for the most part they are waterproof. It is actually fine either way if you have good water circulation ;)
