I have It sideways as opposed to upright.. is this ok?.. I can't find anything on that.. I wanna try n get It right so his water can start warming up!
it's fine, leave it like 20 min, it will turn on when it has to, as for a filter as long as it doesn't take too much space or create too much current, you're good, as for the salt dosage, I used AQ salt for my fish's injuries and use about 1/2 tsp. Hope this helps!
