I prefer the spray bar and any filter return below the surface. Placing the bar horizonatally across an end wall, with the holes (which should be only a single line of holes spaced apart in one continuous line, if you drill one yourself) aimed into the end wall at an angle. This with a bit of experimenting will give a flow mainly down the wall and then across the tank, but much less of a current than now, and some surface movement.
When you say to angle the holes towards the end wall...are you talking about the wall that the spray bar is mounted to or to the other side of the aquarium? To reduce current, what if I alternated the holes on each side of the spray bar? For example, one set of holes would shoot across the tank to the far side while the other set would hit the glass where the bar is mounted? I will probably tackle this project this weekend so I am trying to get all of my information up front
