Hi everyone. I am trying to get everything I need to get my new 75 gallon going and the only thing I have left for my initial setup is a 300w heater. In my current 37 gallon I have a eheim which I’ve been pleased with so far. I was thinking about ordering an eheim e series 300w but am worried it will be too long to mount vertical. Does anyone know if you can mount this particular heater horizontally? Or maybe a different suggestion of heater? I like the fluval m series but can’t really find them anywhere.
Thanks

Most heaters can be mounted horizontal. I have the heater in my 75, positioned horizontal behind a large rock and some plants with an airstone under it. Moves the heat around the tank better than vertical. In hindsight I think I'd go with two smaller heaters if I had to do it again. that way if one fails I have one in there as back up.

I don't have a 75g, but I do have an ehiem heater and it's worked out for me. That's also what the LFS has in all his tanks. I've read nothing but good things on them. Which is the reason I went with the one I have.
