Spray bar on canister

So I just hooked up my fluval 306 on my 46 gallon bow front tank and it does not seem like it moves much water?? I seen they sell spray bar set ups for these and was wondering are they worth the money and do the move more water? Any comments I would appreciate

Fluval 306 move water pretty well IMO, you can make a spray bar for one pretty easy with some PVC pipe.

Are you talking about moving surface water? If you want that than a spray bar would probably work well as it covers a greater area as the previous member mentioned. I have a 205 and it pushes water pretty hard.
