This discussion reminds me of river tank manifolds used by hillstream loach keepers.

I can also add from practical experience designing water features that the easiest way to decrease turbulence and increase laminar flow in piped systems is to increase the diameter of all the pipe. Aquarium circulation/filtration is designed with the smallest possible pipe--easier to conceal. But these small pipes increase turbulence, especially when the water is squirted back into the aquarium through a small-diameter opening.
