I'm not getting enough waterflow into the durso's in my system, the water level is way too low in the weir's.

Beyond "customizing" the weirs and start cutting them, any other recommendations? Maybe I need to go higher with the water volume, but I dont want to overflow the display tank (almost did that earlier!).

I do have it setup so I can adjust the waterflow however I want, but only way to prevent all this, and the noise, its an extremely low flow rate, not at all desired (I really need higher flow rate due to the tank is planned for Oscars - and before people jump on me, its a 220 gallon tank and will be species only)

Below is a pic of the system before I got my sump and everything going - but you can see the weir setup here. I'm almost questioning if I need to cut the top part that has the slots for water to go in the outer weir (I have no idea the actual name of that lol). to get into the overflow section to increase the volume? I just dont want to do it unless I absolutely have to due to it being permanent.

BTW Finally got my solution, really was water level. I felt nervous but was able to get it to work!
