Aokashi,

Why don't you lay your heater down horizontally like I do. Once you've adjusted it to the right temperature, you shouldn't have to mess with it. Those Hagen's are pretty reliabe that way.

I don't have to unplug either my heater or my filter when performing pwc's.

I did think about it... but the tank is pretty much planted on all sides.... an if you've ever ran a small tank, you'll notice that the heater seems incredible bulky no matter where you put it..... so I have the heater upright.... near the filter intake to provide some circulation.
I dont have a hagen in this tank XD the hagen eleite is actually too tall for this tank T_T

oh and I also took off the suction cups to cut down on bulk. so the heater's basically kept verticle by gravity and the physics of the cord pulling away from it >.>

When I do water changes (as rare as that is) I run a line in and a line out... one from a filled gallon bottle above and one into an empty gallon bottle below. this simultaneous WC method chanes out about 25% of the water whithout lowering the water lever significantly. my fish cant even feel it :P

That's brilliant. I thought of a number of reasons why that wouldn't work, so I never tried it. I will now, though. Thanks.
