Right now I have my heater in the middle of my tank. I also have a 14in air stone in the middle as well. Will the bubbles mess with the heater or will it be cool where it's at?? If anyone thinks it will be better off somewhere else let me know!!
I agree with the above, I tend to get mine as close to the filter return as possible but a bit lower so that the returning water disperses the warmed water. This has given me pretty even heating thus far.
They make heaters that don't break. Aqueon Pro heaters, titanium heaters, and a few others would be good choices if you are concerned about breakage. The Pro heaters are some of the best I have ever used.
