I am currently running a custom river tank with dimensions of 72’x6’x8’, a long and narrow tank. The canister filter intake is on the right side of the tank while the outflow is on the left side, distributed by a 1 ft spray bar.
Due to the design of the tank, it is impossible to place the spray bar under the water surface. Therefore, the spray bar is placed so that it is shooting water at the front glass, limiting the amount of gaseous exchange as I am running pressurized co2
The problem is that there is a 1 inch area on the far left side of the tank where the spray bar is unable to reach. That same area also happens to be where the co2
diffuser is located. My worry is that the water and co2
in that 1 inch area is unable to circulate to the opposite side of the tank where the intake.
PS: My tank is fully filled to the top! The back wall is shorter than the front and side walls so it looks like its not filled to the top.
