Unhappy with flow, need suggestions
Seems like a trivial thing, but it is driving me nuts. I have two filters on my 75gal planted tank, and I can't seem to get a good flow pattern without dead spots.
Here's what I'm working with. First is a Rena XP3 with an aquamedic 1000 CO2 reactor on the outflow. The other filter is an Aquaclear AC110 (500). The aquaclear is on the left rear of the tank as you look at it and this puts it's intake in the lower left corner. Right now, I have the Rena set up so that the intake is in the lower right corner. The outflow is a drilled out spraybar that sits below and a little to the right of the AC 100 outflow.
I have tried quite a few other combinations as well. But it seems as though I always have some dead spots.
Anybody out there have this (or similar) filter setups? How do you arrange them for best flow?
