    I noticed some of you use a stealth heater. I basically want to know whats the best way to situate them in the tank?

    I place mine on a slight angel near a power head or filter intake to make sure it circulates well throughout the tank.

    i place mine towards the bottom on an angle
    that way the bottom of the tank is warm since heat rises is more of an even temp all the way tru the water

    Why a slight angle?

    I really can't remember the reasoning but I read many times before that they should be placed horizontally or vertically but on an angle.

    I just realized I spelled "angle" wrong in the other post. :)
