If you use lily pipes with a 2213 on an Ebi, you won't even have to turn flow down. Just know that the dimensions of the tank are such that it could be difficult to get any sort of flow going near your substrate. I had difficulty with several different pipes and ended up just using a spray bar.
lol. I may have overdone it then, just ordered the 2213. I'll be sticking with the spray bar then. My HC started carpeting better after I got a spray bar that sprays atomized co2 down on it. Blyxa nearly doubled in size in 3 days with this inline diffuser!
