Filter and heater

I was told me in my small tank that it was not needed to have a power head to circulate the water that my filters would handle it. Should I keep my heater by the hob? Or should I set it on the other side of the tank?

Either or. I do both. Depends on personal opinion most of the time. The first body of thought is that more water will pass over it and heat faster if you have it by the filter. The second body of thought is putting it on the other side so it has more time to heat the water.
