My media box is completely full. I don't think replacing the carbon or biobag with a sponge will change the flow any noticeable amount.

I've seen (only) three different densities of filter sponge. The two I have each flows differently.

I'd guess that playing with foam density, packing, and amount would alter the flow considerably.

Oh that makes sense....You know I might just get an aquaclear so that I can experiment with it....

I have one in my 10 gallon divided tank and love it, but I typically do baffle it because the fish that's in the side it's on is a SeD male. Were it my female or plakat, I'd probably have no qualms about removing the baffle (I could probably remove it off the SeD's with no problem as he's become a much stronger swimmer than when I got him, actually, but I'm a bit paranoid).
What is a SeD?

I know this is kind of an old thread, but I just bought a tank that came with the Marina S10...I feel kind of dumb here but I can't figure out how to lower the flow? I made a baffle for it and that seems to help but if there is another way too that would be great. The baffle vibrates and is kind of annoying me, lol.

Theres a little nub thing at the top of the intake tube and you just push that all the way to the right and the flow should be perfect :)
