If you take some pictures of the offending parts to the splashing I would try to give you ideas on how to mod it.. :P

and I agree you need to set out a water sample overnight and test it (or airate a sample for about 20 min.. then test)
if this gives you simalar results we might have to look around for the cause (strange buffers in the water or something I cant remember what is the normal cause of this)

I solved the splashing problem by cutting airline tubing in 3" pieces and putting them in the holes in the spray bar making he other end sit in the water. Adjusted my CO2 setup to use a bubble ladder since the diffuser wasnt doing a very good job at diffusing the CO2. Finally, got my pH to drop to ~6.8 and my KH is still at 5. I also changed out my lights to two 6700k bulbs. Now I'm debating whether I should tear my setup apart and start all over again since I'm having problems with what I think is staghorn algae (Pics Below). What do you guys think? The picture in the first post is actually one that I found on the web that looks like mine. My setup has been running for about 9 months and haven't really gotten serious with it until now.

For the filter, I'd go with the bio-rings and floss combo. No need for carbon.
