Aquarium heater near plastic filter

KaylenN

Hi guys. Im new in the hobby so any help is highly appreciated.
I recently bought my first aquarium and got an internal filter with an attached powerhead. The lady said to put the heater at an angle at the bottom and place the filter on the glass above it. . The heater is set to 75 Fahrenheit. The filter is plastic so I just want to know if there's any chance of the heater melting the filter or plastic or am I safe? They are not touching at all but are very close.
Thanks

It should be fine.

as long as they aren't touching it shouldn't be a problem. give it a little space between them is all it takes. It's a good placement because as the water is heated it gets circulated through the tank by the filter.
