Spray bar where to locate

Hello,

I was wondering what is the best location for the spraybar in a planted tank. Right now mine is horizontal on the top of the tank at the same level as the water table. The problems that I have with that is when water evapourates the water spray quite a bit up. Also the water surface is disturbed so much that the plants on that side are not growing as fast and as much. If I direct the spray bar to spray a bit more down, then my plants are being blown to one side of the aquarium. Shold I just take out the spray bar and have the water pour out of the return tube?

You could place it going down the side and spraying forward toward the front glass, eheim ecco makes a cuved attachment that goes to your sray bar I think.

I put my spray bars vertically.
Depending on your spray bar, You could also point the bar down the back glass.
This should give you flow without splash or blowing your plants around.
