good morning

have one tmc on my storage for emergencys
but now going to make a new layout (cant wait for it :) )
the v2 is to long to be vertical inside the tank
my question is if placed horizontaly at the bottom is going to be to close to plants
this heater as a plastic cage só the plants wont touch directly the heater core
settled to 25º is anny problem with my plants being to close ?

note. have good water movement at this place

tanks in advance

No, your plants should be fine.

I would just make sure that the heater is fully submersible.
tanks Antony
after all will stick to my old jager vertical mouted, the tmc was to intrusive in the layout and impossible to put horizontal, to heavy and the suction pad dont have the strength

Many heaters do need to stand up vertical so that the controls operate closer to how they were designed. Heat rises and if it is horizontal it can change the way the controls read and respond.

the tmc is digital and as permanent readings
its a shame its too big for my aqua.

Very good. I see you have thought it through. I have not seen that heater before here in the states.
Please note? Your English is much better than my Spanish ( or any other)!!!
