Fluval Heaters

Hi guys. Got a quick question. I found a gem on Craigslist. Picked up a 65 gal tank w/ stand, 2 Fluval heaters, a Fluval canister filter, two lights one being an R2 Moonlight w/ timer and other oddities all for $150. What I do need to find out is what is the correct placement of my heaters. I am currently stocking my tank w/ Cichlids. I have the two heaters in opposite corners however the one on the right keeps showing LF. I ended up getting an Marineland overflow filter and it is on the left side opposite the heater that i am having trouble with. What can I do?

:Welcome: to AA! We hope ya enjoy

Try turning it off for a little while and plugging it back in and see if that corrects it. Sometimes that's all they need otherwise it will need replaced if it's not working right.

The placement of them on mine is near a corner where I have water movement coming from a filter or power head.
