I should be doing a WC on 60P today - I'll double-check what my flow looks like, even though the spout I use is a bit narrower @ 13mm. I agree with mott, it is rather deceiving, but still...
I know it's a hassle, and I understand that TexasCichlid does not have a spare outflow, but I would remove the lilly pipe, insert a length of 1/2" hose into 5/8" hose (should be pretty snug fit) and let it rip. I personally would expect a hurricane in the tank.Those lili pipes are designed for 'gentle' flow...
If you want to do the bucket test, keep in mind that 5gl buckets are actually closer to 6gl and too many people got 'low' results. I would measure exactly 5gl for the test.
