you could work on constantly keeping the water level about the out-put stream of the filter..other than that, I'm not too sure.
I do know that if your tank is planted....from what I've read, HOB filters aren't the greatest for planted tank because you lose oxygen, which your plants need to live....when there is constant agitation on the surface, there's a constant loss of oxygen.....again I'm not positive, but from what I've read/learned...thats always an issue with HOB and plants.
which is why I have canister filter on the way!!
because they can be submerged and the waterflow can be directed away from plants....i'm sure others will be along Stephanie!
