XP3 is a great size choice for that sized tank. On my 120 gallon I actually used the include jet output that comes standard with an eheim intake. I sort of set it up "ADA style" with both intake...

Try using the lever on the top of the filter for flow control.

That said I think it's better to reduce volocity rather than flow if you can. You can do this by making the holes bigger on the...

Well it's a 450 GPH filter that is going onto a 48" x 24" x 24" tank so I don't think flow will be an issue. I guess I'll have to try it and see. If it's just a small trickle out each spraybar I...

Two sraybars on one cannister filter

Anyone ever try running two spraybars on one canister filter? How did it work out?

My thoughts were to put a "t" on the output and run each end to its' own spraybar on each end of the tank.

Tank is a 65 gallon. I really like it for a planted tank because it has a very shallow height compared to the 55 gallon that we replaced.
