I picked up a cheap sun sun powerhead off amazon for like 7$. Its a 528gph and was meant for my 55 planted. I REALLY didnt think this thing would be this powerful but as soon as I turned it on it started blowing the plants around like crazy.
Its the impeller style with the plastic grate over it and I Was thinking just making some kind of modded cover with smaller outlet holes might reduce the flow a bit in the direction pointed and send the extra out the back.
Anyone have any other ideas. Ive read a dimmer in line wont really help either.
Maybe I can elastic some filter material on the outside as well to reduce it a bit. Might not look very nice though.
