    this may be a silly question..

    Does it matter which way round you use a heat mat?
    Does one side give off more heat than the other?
    I'm using Pro Rep, one side has copper strips running down the edges
    Thanks in advance

    I'm completely confused...isn't one side sticky to stick to the tank and the other side not sticky?

    I think some of the heat mats must be made differently over there.
