    Is there a way to slow down the flow rate of the ac 110? Some fish have trouble getting past it in my 75..

    You should be able to adjust the angle of the intake tube up top...and that will slow down the flow...

    Does it? Maybe you have to jiggle it a bit more...or poke at it from the inside chamber to get it to say in place?

    Stuff the intake tube with something, floss?

    I also cant adjust some of the older AC's for the life of me, maybe its a design flaw

    Try adding a sponge prefilter to the intake to restrict the water flow a bit.

    ....or use something as a shield to slow down outflow.

    Increase your water level as much as you can and/or add a sponge pre-filter to the uplift tube.

    Pushing that little lever to the right slows mine down some but not much.
