Fluval 405 spray bar?

Does anyone use a spray bar on their 405? What are the benefits? Any downside?

I use one. I prefer spray bars over the standard outlets that come with canisters. If you don't want to buy one ($11 on ebay is what I paid), you can DIY one pretty cheap with pvc and a drill bit. I can't think of any downside, unless you have fish that like the current (rainbows come to mind). They can increase surface agiation, if that's something that's needed.
