K. Flow can be dialed back. Plus it has sand with benefitial bacteria in it.

It's all about directed flow. You can have a very powerful filter in a tank as long as the flow is diverted. For your use a small piece of water safe plastic that made the water fan out in 180 degrees out of the filter rather than the usual waterfall shape would decrease the current in the tank while still giving excellent filtration.

Putting that filter in there will blow your fish out of the water.

I had an AC50 and two Koralia Nano's in a 10g SW tank and it was good.
