Flow question


Recommended Posts

I upgraded to a 125 and I want to get some red root floaters and big frogbit. I have chili Rasboras, honey gouramis, red neon eye rainbow fish and other nano fish who don’t care for big flow.

Can I have my canister filters trickle so I can run the floaters without damage? I doubt oxygen will be a problem, but figured I’d ask anyways.

Maybe a DIY spraybar with a modification would work. Instead of having the holes pointing only 1 direction, what about having holes that point in 2, to disperse the pressure more. What I mean is having the one set of holes that point parallel to the water surface and another set that point straight down the side wall of the tank. Would keep the flow for filtration and water movement while cutting down on the surface movement.

I like it! I’ll modify the Fluval one a bit. Didn’t thank about that. Thanks!
