    Default Spray Bar

    Hey guys I just have a quick question concerning my spray bar, it has quite a strong flow and if I were to ace it horizontally it will push all the food away when I am feeding and when I face it down it pushes bubbles from my (yet to buy) air curtain down so I decided to face it to the back wall with a SLIGHT angle downward, I was just wondering if his is safe or perhaps if it may wear away or chip at the glass if not I will face it completely back.

    I doubt it will but better safe then sorry. The glass is 0.5mm and the filter does 1200litre and hour.

    It should be fine the way you have it. You can also face it straight up too, if you like, so it's agitating the surface of the water. I have mine set up like that, to get a nice amount of oxygen into the water, and to limit the amount of current in the tank.
    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    mine is angled towards the surface of the middle of the tank and bounces off the opposite end and creates great circulation. i have also read some people have drilled more/bigger holes to modify their spray bar.

    Straight up? That's ballsy lol. You must keep on top of your topoffs. My eheim would spray the water 5 feet into the air if the water level dropped to low with it facing up. Probably setting my house on fire in the process lol. Slightly up and towards the center works for me.
