about water level...

i have the Aqueon Mini bow 1 and it says hat i can fill water till the bottom edge of the cover...but the problem is then the exiting water area for the filter will be under the water level..is it gonna cause problem since the water is not coming out like a waterfall?..i don't know if it makes sense or not....

So basically the filter flow output lip will be submersed underwater?

I do it with mine to reduce water impact and surface movement, with no ill effect thus far. Of course the current still exists, so you still may wish to baffle :)

It should be safe enough to submerse up to a point, but don't submerse it so much that water flows back into the filter.

My filter has a concave lip which the water flows out of, filling your tank up halfway on a lip like this should be fine.
