Does a heater need to be diagonal in the tank or can it be place totally horizontal so that it can be mildly hidden? I have been told it must be diagonal but I have saw a few pics with the heater placed totally horizontal and even vertical.

If you heater is submeriable you should be able to hang it horizontal. Just becareful that any rock work won't fall and crack the heater.

I have no trouble with my 2 heaters laying flat near the bottom of the bottom of the tank. However I have a fresh tank with no rockwork.

I think you'll be fine putting it horizontal.
We are talking about a submersible heater here, right?

yup it is submeriable, I have some rock work in there but it is firmly based on the tank floor, was just wondering about it because its kind of an ''eye sore'', thanks for the help.
