    okay...stupid question, i know...but i honestly don't know the answer and don't want to risk anything.

    can the submersible heater and HOB filter be on the same side of the tank?

    sure....I don't see why not... I'm planning to do that myself...

    Why not? o_0

    There are no stupid questions :)
    Yes they can be in the same side of the tank, try to put the heater where it gets some of the filter flow over it as that will help disperse the warmed water round the tank.

    i'm not sure why i thought they couldn' don't really like seeing two large black things on both sides of the tank...not easy to hide. so...i figured...put them on the same side and then i only have one side to deal with. hahaha
