As you can see, the plants are doing just fine right in the path of the output tube. The SAE, red-tailed black shark and black tetras all hang out right in the flow. With the amount of plants I have, the current disipates quickly by the middle of the tank.
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.
