Thanks. I have the 2 gal. version & absolutely LOVE it!!!
Personally, I really LIKE the moonlight. I turn the regular light on in the morning & then switch it over to moonlight at about 5:30pm & then shut it off at around 8:30pm.
As far as the filter goes, you CAN push it all the way underwater & helps lessen the flow. Just make sure the "plug" isn't in the water!
Actually, sounds as if you have the flow problem covered, though.
Wish I could get one, but money is a tad tight right now - BUMMER!!!!
