The filter you have on the outside of the overflow is that one the kind that has the black backing on it? if so, I almost want to say you need to turn it around, but I have never used one that way, but its a good idea for a baffle, 1fish my know more on that.

I'm not sure what you're talking about with the "black backing" but since the sponge had the actuall sponge part and the scratchy part, i just cut the scratchy part off and put it infront of the outflow. But is the sponge/scratchy part setup correctly INSIDE the filter??

Don't be sorry, but there is no sponge on the outflow. i cut the scratchy part off of the original sponge and put the scratchy part there. and used the sponge (half) and put it in the filter and a remaining piece of the scratchy part was put infront of the sponge. But yes, i'll ask 1fish, thanks though!

Sorry, I don't. Since the closest fish store is 60 miles round trip for me (I live in a very rural area), I almost always shop on-line.

Looks good :) If it doesn't slow the flow enough I've found that putting two of the "scratchy" sponges one on top of the other will help.

You can get open pore sponge (the scratchy stuff) without the thick sponge part, so you don't have to cut it off. I get mine from the dollar store :)

You have an aquatech 5-15 right? I found that the fluval U1 foam pad fits perfectly between the biofilter and the outflow if you cut right behind the u shaped cutout. =] I also used half of the ushape left behind and stuck it into my intake and it's slowed my flow. I'm still gonna baffle it but I like how it's not as intense anymore. =]
