How far out of the water do they protrude when in the sump? IMO, I would want one in the display though....my thinking is if the return pump fails, your fish won't freeze before you find out and address the situation.

id hate to look at a heater inside the tank. :/ the water level is less than 10" for sure in the sump, and the whole heater standing up is 20-25". i forgot. currently out of town so icant measure it again. i had a family member check the water since i couldnt wait to find out. haha

Water changes. I know it was brought up and the jury is out, but I have seen where people put the heater in the overflow without issues. At least you have a few months or so to get it worked out. Can you return it and get two smaller ones?

finally got to clean the glass. for some reason, the camera shots look purple-ish. in person it looks more blue more than anything.

Blues only @ 100%



whites+other colors only @ 100%



Blues+Whites & Other Colors on @ 100%
(this one is kinda blurry. didnt realize it till i uploaded)
