Does anyone know if the flow rate on the Eheim 2213 can be reduced to lessen the water movement inside the tank? Many of these canister filters have great flow rate, but at the cost of blasting water into the tank to the point the fish struggle and plants look like they're in a tropical storm. I know I can redirect the spray bar, but is there a way to actually reduce the flow coming out?

Agree with those above. It is mentioned in one of the Eheim manuals. Not sure which manual though. I also find I like the wider flow of removing the spraybar. On longer tanks, it seems the fuller, wider flow carries the length of the tank more than the concentrated spray from the bar. Might play with that idea if it fits.

I like that idea; I don't really want to reduce water flow but rather want to reduce the force of the water. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a try.
