    I have an aqueon quietflow HOB in an axolotl tank. The axie's been looking kinda peaked lately, and since water tests came back normal, I'm betting that the filter's flow is too high for the little guy. So how do I reduce its flow?

    There are many things that you can use for a baffle. Easiest and cheapest method would be to cut the middle portion of it and cut it down the middle then just insert it into the filter. (image bettabox)
