Mine wasn't too bad. Just set it with the most possible air at first for a week or so til it breaks in...

Yep the product set up manual states that you leave it on full blast till it breaks in. This can take up too 3 weeks.

I have never heard anyone say that. Ummmm. . . . What is happening to make you think that? Are all of your corals being blown around? Most pumps have flow setting to adjust the overall flow

We cannot get the water pressure/flow set right. water level in dt keeps rising even with the shut off valve almost completely closed gah
