I recently built a spray bar out of 3/4 inch PVC
pipe for a Fluval FX5 filter. I am trying to calm the hurricane that this massive filter seems to create. It is in a 90 gallon freshwater planted tank. The specks of the spray bar are: 21 inches long (the longest it could be) there are 19 evenly spaced holes, each hole is 3/16 of an inch.
Even with the spray bar I seem to get a hurricane effect. To prevent this should I:
a.) Drill the holes out bigger
b.) Drill more holes
c.) I could put a elbow "T" in the PVC
and make it 15 inches longer
d.) A combination of them
e.) Any other suggestions?
Thank you everyone for your help!
