I got a "pre-filter" made by Fluval - I think for the Edge - and that makes a great baffle for the flow. I cut about 1/2 inch or so off the end, which made a little circle, then I cut that so I had one long strip. I just put it over the little thing the water comes out of and secured it with a rubber band. Works like a charm.
i bought a circular black foam tube made by fluval for 2.99 . its made for the fluval edge filter intake pipe,you slide it over the pipe and it stops the baby fish or small invertibrets from being sucked up into the filter,cut about 2 inch off it and slide it onto the spec outflow pipe,hold it in place with a rubber band and now the tank water is so still,it always feels like the filter is turned off..
im just afraid that maybe the filter is not filltering as much water as it used to,ive no way of testing it
