but this is the first time I'm actually setting up a tank on my own. (With filter and all). My dad usually does it, but he has no clue I bought a new tank for my beta's 1 year birthday.. and also to accommodate my college dorm room. Anyway, I will admit that I am by no means an expert on Fish-Tank-SetUp, and would gladly be open to any help I can get with my set up process!

I'm having trouble with setting up the filter. I bought a simple tank that came with the basic needs for my beta, and I thought it'd be easy to set up, but as paranoid as I am, I keep second guessing how well I installed the filter. Yes, it was already set up in the back portion of the tank, but when I filled it up with water, it filled back there too, of course, but as I'm paranoid of hazards, is it wrong for the cord to be submerged in water? Obviously the cord feeds out the back of the tank, but just the beginning of it was submerged in water. The instructions the tank came with did me no good, and I'm just sitting here trying to find any old posts with this silly question. Don't hate me guys! You can laugh at me though. XD But I guess it's better to ask than to mess up. Thank you all.. if this is on the wrong board, please tell me!

Alright wasn't sure I could double post, but since I got some feedback (thanks guys!) uh, the tank I got was an Aqueon evolve2 tank, and wow I totally just read that it is submersible, but it's totes not going to start a hazard on me, will it? XD Thanks all!

it's a pretty sure bet that if they sell it to be submersible, it's water safe. the manufacturers might not care much about your fish (with their laughable "instructions") but they're DEFINITELY gonna play it safe when it comes to risks to human beings with the power to file lawsuits.
