You can add a ball valve above the pump to control the flow.

I like to use a canister sponge that'll reach across the tank and set it on my first baffle to the bubble trap to my return section..helps keep any debris making it into there and an added benefit is gives it a smoother "pour" down the section which I believe helps stop the bubbles sooner..I tend to clean the sponge thoughly every couple days though so that it does not build up any nitrates

Filter sock can be a pain. Much less effort need to skip the filter socks and run a skimmer rated 2 to 3 times the volume of your tank. When I stopped using socks my cyano went away
