There's a small lever on top of the filter that will adjust the flow. Just push the lever all the way to the right. That will slow the flow of water.
That's a pretty powerful filter for such a small tank. The 40 G only needs a filter with a gallon per hour (gph
) rating of 6 times the volume of the tank in gallons. That's 240 gallons per hour. An AC
70 turns over 300 gallons, so that would be plenty and the water flow wouldn't be as strong. The 70 is less expensive too.
Just a thought.
