Eheim discharge line?

I have a eheim canister in my 80 fresh. I have the discharge line parallel with the bottom of the tank, mounted at 2 inches under the water level on the short end of the tank. Is this a good position/location?

I have my discharge located 1" under the waterlevel. Please clarify "Short end of tank". If one end of your tank is shorter than the other all the water would pour out.

Shorter as in front to back, not top to bottom

The placement sounds fine, Chaz, as long as you are happy with the flow through the tank. I have mine positioned about 1" below the surface. If you ever notice your fish "gasping" in the mornings, try moving it closer to the surface as I had that problem initially. Enjoy the new filter.
