I am not sure if I understand what you are saying? The waterfall in the picture is under water.

I was just thinking about that (too much water flow) amd I think I have the same problem. I have a fx5 and a fluval 305 both on the 75 gallon tank. O well

Does anyone have any experience with any of these sandfalls in this link? http://www.aquaglobe.com/select01.html#prod01 I think the one at the top of the page looks good but I don't know how well it would work. I am also trying to figure out a way to attach some tubing so the bubbles wont be coming out the back. Any thoughts?
