I have had a marineland c-350 and it came with everything to get it started ( including spray bar ).
U can use a small pvc pipe and drill small holes through it. Then connect it to the outtake hose . On the back side, drill 2-3 holes for suction cups. Or u can just glue/silicone the suction cups on. Then just close the end of the pipe. That can be a DIY spray bar.

Those are pretty too. I thought they were betta harks at first. I'm more interested in that one with the two vertical stripes. It is really pretty to me. If you happen to find out what it is, pleas let me know.
