Heater Question: Min line vs Max line???

So I'm used to heaters that have a "max fill" line where you shouldn't submerge beyond said line. But the new one I have for the 30gallon I'm upgrading my betta and his community companions into says "min" instead of "max". Does that mean the water is suppose to be over that line? If so, how much? Can these be completely submerged?

Yeah heater's with Min line's rather than max are usually fully submersible but can be sticking out of the water as long as the water is above that line. Preferably at least half an inch but really anything over that line will be fine. Max line heater's cannot be submerged fully.

Alright, thanks! I know it probably seems like a silly question but I didn't want to assume and burn out the heater by putting it in too deep.

Max line NOT submergible
Min line water has to be at least up to this line and MAYBE or MAY NOT be fully submergible

Yeah they'll say if they're fully submersible. If it doesn't say that but has the Min Line, don't fully submerge it then and just keep the water above that line is all.
