| | How to determine output flow?
Hi everyone...my first post here. But if this is not the correct section, please correct me.
I have read much about increasing or reducing flow rates of canisters. This is all fine. What remains a question mark for me is, how do I tell if the flow of the output is the just right?
While some say if the plants start to sway, it's probably too much. But, even with a much reduced flow, plants near the output sway.
Or do I back off once I see fishes making an effort to swim against the flow?
Hope y'all can help out.
Some info: eheim 2234 without spray bar, 15 gallon tank, planted quite heavily.
