I bought a Fluval Spec V Aquarium to house a betta and I'm puzzled by the location of the output nozzle.
I started setting up aquariums 40 years ago when you put the angel hair and charcoal in a plastic housing, stuck an air tube in it and placed it firmly in the corner of your tank. Later I "upgraded" to a foam filter and loved that simplicity.
But this Fluval Spec V has the water reaching the filter from the TOP of the aquarium, basically skimming the water surface, then shooting the water back out through a nozzle at the TOP of the tank.
Now, I have great respect for the legendary Fluval company. Back in the day, they were a German manufacturing company making the finest outside filters you could buy. I eventually bought a system for a 55 gal. aquarium and loved the industrial design of the filter. But, I can't see how this Fluval Spec V setup is going to keep my aquarium water filtered efficiently. And here's my question: for those of you who have this set-up, where do you point the nozzle for the best results?
