Just lower it so it resides under the rim of the tank. The heater you're using (as well as most heaters) are fully submersible so you can lower it all the way in the water to get it where you want it.

I don't know about max level but there's a water level line. It may be so you don't have the heater too far outside the water. If the heating element is not submersed fully, it will burn out from overheating. There's no water to dissipate the heat. Again, not sure about the Hagen... If all else fails, you could always spring for another tried and true heater. Heaters are an important aspect of the reef system.

Checkout this really old thread about this heater. It appears the heater is OK to fully submerse, but local regulations depict they must indicate a max water level.

"Hagen Elite sumersible heater" - not submersible?
