Add a tiny little piece of sponge (nipped off the main filter sponge) inside the outflow nozzle, and the flow is reduced a LOT. Adjust the size the sponge inside until you have it dialed in. You want some sort of filtration, else you may as well just have a 2 gallon bowl. It's just a matter of reducing the flow to something gentle, and positioning the output nozzle until you find a position that works well in your tank. (be sure the pump is set to low, also)
thanks kman. using pieces of the main filter sponge is a great idea and I wish I had thought of that sooner.
Tanks are looking really good! Proud to say I just picked up my Spec V earlier this week. I'm pretty excited and have been lurking these forums 24/7. I'll post pics as soon as anything gets put into the tank (probably going to use the DSM). Thanks to all for the inspiration and information.
