My HOB filter is creating too much current.
Does anyone have any tricks or fixes I can use to somehow divert the flow to the side of the tank?
I don't know if my solution will work for you but it seems to work rather well in my tank, in all parts of the tank besides right below and in front of it the current has been substantially reduced, my floating plants aren't constantly tossed around.
What I did was take a water bottle and cut the ends off. I cut the remaining portion to the size of the outflow then taped the bottle on the lid of the HOB and hung it down and under the outflow. This causes the water the run to the left and right sides instead of straight down into the tank. It greatly reduced the current without reducing the filtration.
