Oh also are you holding it so that its minimum water level line is at the water surface point?

Yeah, I tried to hold it so that it would be as far from the bottom as it could be, but also still be about where the minimum water level line would be too. It's just a taller heater. If it were able to be installed sideways it would be perfect!

For Gallifrey - measurements!
6.5 inches, as advertised

Less than 1/2 inch thick:

About 2 inches wide:

Haha yeah, i just got an email from amazon saying "Someone said your review was helpful!" lol Also, just a hint - you can get them for about $5 cheaper if you search on ebay and it's free shipping, so saving about $10 total :) I suppose Amazon might have a better return policy though lol

Nothing says you have to install your heater vertically (except custom --- from the days when heaters were not submersible). I fact there are advantages to installing them horizontally.

I prefer to install them sideways as well, but on the instructions that came with the heater it states to not install it sideways - which is why I said it :)

Good point...I mean, if its fully submersible, then what difference does it make? I would imagine placing it horizontally would help it distribute heat throughout the tank better and faster...

I have the 25W in my 5.5 gallon. You can check the temperature at a glance, no calibrations, and it's smaller than pretty much every adjustable heater out there.

It has a 3 Year warranty too. Merle is always at a perfect 78 degrees. Worth the extra cost, I highly recommend it.
