I understand.

What would be your recommendation for a setting, then? Should I leave it on maximum even though there's a hard current?

if your fish are being blown around and avoiding that part of the tank then i would lower it, i would also test your water after a couple of days to make sure slowing the flow isnt hurting your water quality.

Okay; but as I said, the knob isn't really making much of a difference, if at all, so...

Could the "lowered" flow really "harm" water quality that much?

Thanks.

Anyone else with any suggestions or insight in terms of the AquaClears' flow control?
