Have a read of this, it should help.....
Good circulation pump for 75 gallon planted
The most weird thing about it is that I don't get the LF message anymore, when the second heater is in the water. How is that possible? What does the other heater have to do with water flow? I am truly confused.

Ian do I understand it right, that I would need two of those for 75gal? And that bigger ones are just to strong?

No, your fine with one. They are rated for 100g. Do you have an old internal filter??. You could pop that in, with NO media and leave it for a day or two. If you get no LF flashing, then we know the problem. Is there anyway you can place the heater in the flow of your filter. That could solve the problem too.....
PS....I have the E200 in my 55g.

I have two marineland emperor filter. The only cacheable movement might be on the other side across from it. I can try that

It works I have the heater now in the left front corner across one of the filters. No more LF.
But there is still one thing about this heater I don't understand. I have it set for 81F. During the day it keeps the Temp nicely in the green zone 80, 81, 82F
In the morning it's blue and at 79 or 78F.
Shouldn't this heater keep the water in the green zone?

After some research on the Company side I found something interesting.
They wrote to try the following to adjust the temp. :

The E Heater is very visual, and is showing you in detail what is happening in the tank. You are seeing changes that you would not likely see with a heater that simply has an on/off indicator light.

Your E heater may have needed to be reset, to do this turn off the heater and re-position the heater on a 45 degree angle, then turn on the heater and turn down the temp as low as it will go, 18 degree’s, then turn up the heater as high as it will go, 34 degree’s, after this set the heater to the desired temp and leave at a 45 degree angle.

You may find it helps if the heater is positioned on a 45 degree angle to disperse the heat .The heater is so sensitive, it may read the water temp inside the heater guard if positioned vertically and if the water circulation around the heater is compromised in any way.

I tried that and since then I have no problems anymore. I have it hanging in a 45 degree angle now on the right side close to the front.
No more LF and no more blue.
Fingers crossed that it will be the same tomorrow morning

This morning LED blue 77F. What the hell?
Why is this thing not heating during the night?
