I didn't like too much flow so I came up with that idea which also increases the filtration capacity. Flow in shrimp tanks is a personal preference. I make sure moving water everywhere but to a minimum. That AC 150 + DIY thing helps me achieve all the goals I had. I have shrimp tanks with canister filter and the result isn't better than tanks with this setup. BTW, mine also caught some riccia and it grew pretty nice. I put a few piece of peacock moss on the front side (between the front and the filter floss), and they grow very nicely too.
