Suggestions for HOB filter with plants
 
I am currently in the process of changing my 55g tank over to a planted tank. I currently use the AquaClear 500 HOB filter in my plantless tank. I am TRYING to figure out a way to continue to use my HOB filter in my planted tank. Does anyone have suggestions on how to diffuse the HOB filter? I was considering the water bottle method on the out take to dispurse the flow to each side and maybe a sponge on the intake? Any suggestions from anyone or advice from people that use HOB filters on a planted tank will be much appreciated. Thanks for your help!
