    Hello All,


    Can anyone recommend a circulation pump for a 35L Eheim Aquastyle planted tank - it has an internal Eheim filter but because of the way the outlet of this filter is angled much of the flow dissipates rapidly. It claims to do 200L/h -- but suspect when the filter gets a bit grimy it's going to be much less than this.


    I've tried a Koralia Nano 900L/h (240G/h) -- but its pretty strong in this little tank (moving 900L per hour as it does). Does anyone have recommendations for circulation pumps for these smaller tanks that aren't going to blow my plants around like it's a rapids biotope :) .


    Ty in advance! :) -- Rhizomorph.

    Maybe restrict the output on the Koralia by blocking off some of the inlet holes?


    I'm guessing this won't be a CO2 heavy tank so maybe some old school low tech options? Air stone? Air lift? Ditch the Eheim filter in favor of an air driven sponge?
