    I have a 150 watt heater in my 29 gallon tank I'm setting up. I put it on the back wall, but the temple plants are going to grow up and be against it. Is this an issue? Will they get scorched? I can't think of a place to put it where plant growth won't be except on the front display glass. LOL. Uh - no.

    I lay my heater down horizontal in the back, and then try to keep plants about an inch away from it. In time as they grow up and over the heater, they hide it pretty well, with out any of the plants coming in contact with the heater.

    My plants go all over my heaters (use the plants to hide them) with no ill effects...
    Cmon, I think a heater on the front is great ;)

    Wherever I put the heater in the tank I put the temperate gauge at the opposite end as far away from the heater as possible.
    This gives me a better indication what the water temperate is.

    Just my 2 cents.
