A beautiful tank, natural plants cannot be matched by fake ones.

Does it matter how i position the heater (horizontal/vertical). I am thinking abouthiding it in the left hand corner?
I position mine horizontal along the substrate line, that way I don't have to unplug it when I'm doing water changes.

Mine are down by the gravel as well. Helps avoid that "aw crap I forgot to unplug the heater" panic when doing water changes

Do you just have live sand down, or is there gravel underneath the sand?

Looking good! You'll never look at plastic plants again. Are you putting on a background/covering? Black or blue solid color would look nice.

I say black, the plants REALLY stand out, and even the slightest colors from fish can be seen. Plus, you cant see all the alea on the back wall. Heres mine, you you can get an idea of how it looks

It shouldn't matter how you position the heater if it is a fully submergable type... I have 1 fluvial 200w that provides labeling of the 1 inch gap where the water level needs to sit.
