You could baffle the filter by either putting a sponge around the output or with a plastic bottle. If you google "DIY Filter Baffle" you'll get a ton of info on that. Baffling doesn't necessarily change the output of the filter, but it will redirect the flow to the sides with much less force.


It's funnier in Enochian.

First, why two filters in so relatively-small a tank?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
