I am guessing from the photo this is a cube type tank? Where you place the heater in the tank isn't really important as long as the area has good flow around the heater.

When I had freshwater tanks, I tended to place the heater in a line with the outflow of the powerhead. The powerheads in my tank, normally 2 in my 75 gallon, were placed to cause a circular motion (moving left to right at the front and therefore right to left in the back) of the flow in the tank and water column.

Do you think I should put another power head where the eater is because that side of the tank doesnt have any flow.

Depending on the type of powerhead you might be able to change the angle of the motion. If you can't, you either need to buy a powerhead that can or add something else to get the flow. A reef tank needs a good flow around the entire tank..you don't want any "dead" spots.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
