Was thinking Eheim true temp or Hydor inline. The Eheim 200w is to long to mount verticaly, so can it be mounted horizontally? Any thoughts on the Hydor inline? Using a Eheim pro4+ 350 on a 55g tank with live plants. Will be using a seperate temp controller.

Most modern heaters are fully submersible. There should be instructions on the box whether they are not. At a quick glance, though, the Eheim is submersible.

I am aware the Eheim is submersible. I guess what I'm asking is, can it be put in horizontally. If so I might get it (200w). If not, then I would get the Hydor in-line. Nice to see a familiar name by the way.

In this case, fully submersible means you can place the entire heater under the surface. My first heater was old style where you had to keep the top inch or so out of the water, but submersible heaters are capable of being placed in any configuration you like at any depth.
