What is the most efficient way to do this without harming the pump?
The obvious solution is to not have the output valve all the way open, but this seams like it would build pressure on the impellor and stress the pump.
I have the 2217 on a 55Gal tank and the flow seams a little fast
I mounted the spray bar on the top left hand side and the suction next to it going down.
The co2 diffuser is on the right hand side of the tank
Is this a good way to set these up?
The flow is so fast that the plants in the back of the tank are angled to the side and some of the fish have to fight the current(although it does keep the tetras schooling very well)
I know that the filter is oversized for a 55G but I got it at a good price that I could not asy no to & my HOB filter was outgassing all my co2
