    I bought an Eheim awhile back, it came with no instructions and the spray bar was completely new to me (had an old Fluval).

    Anyway, I placed the spray bar facing lengthwise in the tank and the fish love the river/stream like effect, they swim so happily in it that i just smile.

    Thinking this was the way you place the spray bar I've recently noticed photo's and see no one placed it as i have, they have it at the back facing the front of the tank.

    Is the way i have it wrong or is it a preference thing. I would really hate to take the stream away from the fish now.

    edit: Intake and Outtake are at opposite ends of the tank.

    Anyway is fine as far as I know. I have always put mine in length wise, though now I have two filters hooked up to the same tank with spray bars, the more powerful filter is facing length wise and the less powerful one is facing the front lol. It was the only way I could fit everything in :)
