With a spray bar you get a softer flow throughout the tank. Great for fish that don't like a strong current. I spaced the holes 1 inch apart and made a second row pointing down on an angle spaced 2 inches. Mine is 2 ft, and that covers almost the entire back of my tank. When I run my hand over the bar the water flow all the way along is nice and even. This is still in testing with hole sizes. I used a 1/8th drill bit for the holes.
This is my first spray bar so I'm still working on it and to see if I have any issues with water movement and dead zones in my tank.
I'm in the process of re-doing my tank with Fluorite Black Sand, a switch from regular black fluorite. I'll keep ya posted on my findings with this setup.
Perhaps if anyone uses a spray bar they can chime in on what they think are some pros and cons over just the single output.
