I put the heater near the bottom because heat rises and I want the tank to have good all around heat. P's are mostly at bottom so I would like it to be the temp I set there. I didnt think anyone would like the garbage bag
. Thx for the reply.

Nice setup! Don't worry about the heater position. With the water flow from the filters and that powerhead, it will even out the temp all around the tank.

Thx for all the replys I have moved some stuff around and have alot more to do yet. I moved some more plants from my other tank and bought a plant bulb to help them grow. I think it has like a month left to cycle. I added filter media from my old tank now just got to wait and aquascape some more.

Nice looking setup! It's coming along nicely.

Why aren't you getting some cycler boosting aditives like bio spira or stability?

Puting 5 RBP in there i have them in a cycled 44 gallon for now they are now about 1-2 inches. I dont mind waiting for it to cycle the natural way I am in no hurry plus this way I can afford aquascaping it this way. Pay check by paycheck
