Have been thinking about the 2213 and am concerned about the amount of flow - even from a DIY spray bar. I chose it for my Ebi because it's powerful enough to push water down to the substrate to provide flow for carpeting plants. On a much more shallow tank, though, it could be a hot mess.

I'm sure I could temper flow with the quick disconnects and/or find some sort of small lily pipe set but really prefer the spray bar method. Primarily because it allows for much more surface agitation which leads to better cooling for shrimp.

Any thoughts? Anyone use a 2213 on a shallow tank like this?

Worst case scenario, I'll pick up a 2211.
