Im using a red sea max 130 for my new planted tank and it has 2 circulation pumps that are basically intended for a reef tank (which this tank used to be). I have been using just 1 of the pumps but I'm getting ready to add some glowlight tetra and Im afraid that the flow might still be too much for them.
I thought I might put ziptie a sponge on the circulation pump and see if that reduces flow.. will this work or is there a better idea for reducing it? My other idea was just to not use the filter that came with the tank and grab a sponge filter since my tank is heavily planted. Any ideas?
Heres a picture of the pumps I have..
