Mag 9.5

Good day everyone. It's been a long time since i've been here. I had to move and unfortunately couldn't keep my old 75 gallon tank, so I had to break it down and sell it off.

I have been missing the hobby, and now have the opportunity to get back into it. I'm going to be getting a 55g and setting up a Tiger Barb only tank (with the exception of some ottos and a Port Hoplo cats) planted with fake silk plants.

I have a Mag 9.5 that I never used that I would like to take advantage of, but I am wondering if the current would be too swift. I plan to have an overflow going to a sump and the Mag 9 returning to to the tank via a spraybar just below the surface of the water.

Would this be acceptable? I am way out of touch with all things aquarium and I need to get re-acquainted.

I don't know about the barbs, but the ottos would love that kind of current.
