Hey guys. I have a 12 gallon filtration question. I have a Penn Plax Cascade 700 filter that I'm thinking of using on the tank. Is this way overkill?

It's rate at 185 gph for up to 65 gallon tanks. Sounds pretty intense to me. From my experience with it, I think it really does come out of the jet output and the spraybar output extremely hard/fast.

If it is too much, would a certain pipe set help? I want some glass pipes, so would a poppy output make it better? My understanding is that it softens the output and spreads it out more. Less intense and wider coverage.

Thoughts?
