Thanks a bunch Angel! That looks great! I will definitely look into these options. I would respond in more detail but I have to go do the barn. ugh
I just got done doing a PWC in my 56 gallon and finally put in the longer tubing for the powerhead for the big sponge filter. What a pain in the rear! But, once again, I should have used my own judgment. After raising it up it causes a bigger current because I cannot angle it quite as high -- overkill against the glass top. I knew I should have gotten the type that has the lever to slow it down but the LFS owner advised me otherwise...those are not good because it can ruin the motor when you turn it down and believes in so many gallons of movement per hour...can't remember what they said. It was not bad when it was lower in the tank but it was an eye sore. So now I need to go get the right one after I do the barn. I hate driving and I hate running errands and what a waste of money! I knew I was thinking right, but of course they did not carry that other one. At the time I was not sure about having live plants but I was concerned with too much water movement for Angelfish. Even without live plants the current is too much. Since the tank is not quite as wide it makes it worse. My grass is waving around.
