Hello folks i have bought a eheim ecco 130 for my 10 gallon tank.I can turn the flow down with the taps.Does turning the flow down harm the filter.At the moment i dont have any fish in the tank but i want to add fish can you recommend some small fish that would enjoy a fast flowing tank.

Cheers mick

As long as you can turn it down on the return side then you'll be fine. If its on the intake side of the filter you could risk running the pump/impeller with out water which could be bad.
