reduce current without reducing flow

Mcgrublin

hey guys I know my filtration is OVERKILL(filters in my signature). but I purchased the canister for a 70 gallon tank that we plan on getting in a little while and I figured I might as well seed it early. that being said u can imagine there is quite a high flow rate but the fish don't seem to be struggling, also I read that turning the flow down is hard on the motor for a fluval can and I really don't wanna hurt it and also like the amount of filtration I am getting but was wondering if I could reduce the current coming off the canister without reducing flow? thanks a bunch

You can angle the intake different ways or if you have a spray bar either adjust towards the top of the tank or widen the holes slightly.

I find putting filter padding on the outflow if there is room helps also.

1) point the spray bar/outlet towards the tank wall instead of into the open space.
2) drill the spray bar holes larger, which reduces pressure from each hole.
