hey all,
i have a 1200L/H internal running in my tank at the moment while my tank is cycling, ive come to the conclusion even with the nozzle on the internal set to 'Low' the flow is still a bit quick for some fish i had in mind to be adding when the cycle completes (angels, gouramis) was wondering if theres anything i can do to reduce the flow???
thanks

320 gph is too much for a 60 gallon tank? What makes you think it's too much?

I was just wondering why you thought it was too much.

What kind of an outflow does it have? A spraybar? A waterfall like a HOB?

So it comes out of a nozzle?

That's not a lot of flow - I can't think of any fish that would need less than that.
