So i was doing something in the kitchen and i looked over and i could not see a thing in my tank it was completely cloudy because my garbage petco powerhead blew all of my sand everywhere leaving a cloudy tank , and a spot with no sand i was sick of that stupid powerhead always falling over plowing everything everywhere!, so i made a DIY out it i wanted to reduce the flow and make it clean up after itself so i took a filterpad that i threw out earlier because its covered in sand (now the new one is covered in sand 2) I cut it into a decent square i put carbon in the middle and strapped it with a rubberband to the output on the powerhead now it has alot less flow and it cleans up after it self and if it falls down again it wont be AS bad as before here's a picture tell me what you think!

I had a prob with my powerheads moving sand around. I've finally got them in place where they're not doing any earth moving lol. I have them on the sides of the back wall about halfway down pointed up an to the middle of the front panel. Good air exchange and circulation while keeping the LS where it should be. Though in a corner tank it seems like everything is that much trickier lol.
