    Default Simple DIY Filter current reducer.

    Hello everyone! Does anyone have any simple DIY ideas to lower my filter current? I've been running a Marineland Penguin Power Filter 200 for some time now. It's always had a pretty high flow/current, but was never a problem until I got my Corkscrew Val's that have now reached the top and get pushed around everywhere. I've thought of sponges, but read that can sometimes burn your motor up. I have some spare bamboo skewers and stacked them and placed them against where the water comes out to try make the water go to the side a bit, it kind of worked but I'm sure there's probably a better way.

    You could try the below:

    That had worked pretty good for me
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Thanks Cliff! I'm not sure that's really what I'm looking for. The way my tank is setup, I don't really want to do any floating plants there so you would see plastic from the front of the tank. I may try it anyway since it is made from something I can find around the house.
