I keep mine about half way down, but I use sand for a substrate. It will be fine where it's at, anything that it misses can be vacuumed during water changes.

How deep is your tank? I have the opposite problem with my c-360. It's too long. I have to put it at an angle and haven't found a fix.

It will be OK. You could go to your local home improvement store and purchase tubing / conduit - rigid or flexible. It'll be a quick cheap fix if you want to extend it.
