29 gallon filtration

Would a fluval 404 be too much for a 29 gallon planted aquarium?

You can throttle it down if it blows your plants around too much. Do you have it already or are you thinking about buying that large of a filter to upgrade to a bigger tank later?

Maybe I should have mentioned that I have a Fluval 404 already.
My version does not have a spray bar. My version also did not come with
a regulator valve on the return .

Thank you!

just pack it with extra media or filter floss and it should slow down the return, plus you will get extra sparkly water, lol.

If you're interested, here's the spray bar for the 403 (I may work and it's fairly cheap):

plugs: http://www.thatpetplace.com/Products.../Itemdy00.aspx

ball valves, if needed for flow control (here's three different sizes):
1/2"- http://www.thatpetplace.com/Products.../Itemdy00.aspx
5/8"- http://www.thatpetplace.com/Products.../Itemdy00.aspx
3/4"- http://www.thatpetplace.com/Products.../Itemdy00.aspx
