So my 10 gallon tank now has 1 betta, 7 Ghost Shrimps, and 3 live plants.
My filter is in the far back left corner and my heater is in the far right. (sorry, pics would be hard to gbet right now...) The heat doesn't seem to be getting around though. The heater is vertical in the far back right corner. Should I turn It on its side (It's submersible)? I can put the hot end closer to the filter to get the water flowing through it warm.
Thanks in advance!
Is that the case, even for a five gallon, Shadowsbiker? I'm not having a problem (I don't think!) but my heater is vertical in one corner of my tank. Would it be more effective horizontal closer to the bottom???
I have mine near a micro bubbler I have in the back of the tank. I routinely check temps in different places throughout the tank with a digital thermometer I use and it pretty much is even all around. Some heaters I have been told should not go on their side so if you have the instructions still do check.
