Your gonna want to put the sensor about 3-4 inches away from the direct , that way it will switch off wen to hot but will be able to get ambient temps aswell , i recomend sticking a thermometer in the centre of the tank aswell mate.. im no expert lol but i found this best with mine ..
Hope this helps
