do you have it turned down because of your over flow limits?
or just cause the jets are too powerful?
to ease the streams you can make larger holes in the initial pipe.
or more of them. doyou get a good current all over the tank? i have 180 gallon. mine is not hooked up yet, i pick up my pipe and acrylic for my fuge tomorrow.
have any pics of your setups?

I have it turned down because of my flow limits. I have three 1 1/4 intakes from the weir to my sump and it still cant keep up with the pump.

I dont have the spraybar setup yet. you can get a better idea of my setup here

justdiy The part I'm trying to figure out now, is how to attach the pipe to the tank
for attaching the spray bar you might consider glueing some plastic clips like the ones that hold brooms to the wall to your tank. that might hold the pipe, if you use enough of them.

That was pretty good. I get my pipe today and will work on it tonight, see how much pressure my mag 24 will put through it, i have a water trough for the cattle so im gonna fill it and test there. thanks for that info. perhaps a "hanger" of sorts is not needed

Actually I put mine in my tank but have not filled my tank as of yet because i had to pay taxes and all and do not have the funds for my lighting. so im still waiting to test it in the tank.
