whats your hardscape like?
Cool please keep us updated, as I will be setting mine up in a few weeks as well.I'm about to set it up in the next day or two. I'm going to place the intake and outtake on the same end. I'm just not sure if the output will be to much for my army of tetras and danios. You can turn down the flow on the intake and outtake on the fx5. If it is too much my backup plan will be a spray bar
I don't think it would look very bulky, depending on the positioning of it. If you place it at one end of the tank, running front to back so that it sprays the length of the tank, I think that would minimize its profile and make it less noticeable.So on the same end would be a circular motion where opposite ends would be more of a run way flow. I love the ideas of a spray bar but war to avoid the bulky look on a open top tank
Sounds like you might have just needed a stronger filter for how long the tank wasIn my experience, it hasn't worked like this. Stop the strong flow part at about 1/3rd the tank length from the out put, then fill the rest of the tank with weak to no flow at all.
