My question is should i cut the spray bar to make it work or will the setup I have running now work? Will try and post a pic later
This is difficult for me to answer since I am not there to see the effect of the filter. If the spraybar is like my Eheim ones [mine are old now, from 1996] it has a little plug in the end opposite the end that attaches to the hose. Don't cut the plug end if you do cut it, as that end is threaded for the plug to be secure. You could saw or use an exacto knife to cut the other end where the hose connects. If you do use the spraybar, obviously it will work best across the tank on the end wall. But another option is to have it diagonal on the end wall, I have seen this done. This would create a slightly different flow pattern, and should be effective. I've not tried this myself.
