Actually something totally else caught my eye looking at your tank: Do you have the output ran downwards sorta like the water intake pretty much? Like down the corner....Just curious cause that's a set up I never tried so I wanna know

Good question. Yes, that's how the spray bar is mounted. I have the holes in the spray bar pointing against the glass to the right. That helps to reduce the current so the plants there don't bend over.
