AQua clear flow

Does anyone know a way of slowing down the flow on the AC 110 other then turning it to the left!?!? Every time I feed my fish the water just takes it a pushes the food all over

I've heard of some adding more poly floss or filter floss or even more media of some sort.

That + and - thing is a joke IMO but I love the filter.

You could also shut it down for a couple of minutes when feeding so it doesn't blow everything all over.

Also what size tank is it on and what fish?

I've seen a DIY "spraybar" made out of a plastic cup.

Hook it up to an outlet that's powered by a switch. When you feed, turn the switch off, then back on when done feeding.
