Marineland 400 - Extension tube cutting?
I started up a new 75 gal a few days ago. Everything was working fine except the filter - a Marineland 400. The water was coming out of the spray bars fine, but it was just dribbling out the actual box. I did some research and discovered the problem to be the water in the aquarium was not high enough. I added more water and the filter is running better - but it is definitely not running at 400 GPH. I'm sure putting the extension tube on the filter would help, but if I did it would basically be sucking up gravel as my tank is not too high.
Could I somehow cut the extension tube, so that it can go lower in the tank, but still fit?

The water level is about 1 inch from the top, as high as it will go.
I was going through the Marineland website and help guides, and every suggestion was "make sure the water level is high enough for the filter" - So I was just thinking might as well try and bring the filter tube down to the water level.
