That's fine, BUT on a lot of tanks (especially acrylic) if the water gets in under the top strip it acts like a siphon for some reason and you will have water running out of the tank.

To be on the safe side I would lower the water to at least just a little below the black rim. I have the same filter as you and I did this. More aesthetic (for me anyways) and just as good as baffling. Only you cant really adjust the flow. But the higher your water level the gentler the trickle.

Drax seems to be getting used to the 'Death' Current and the 'DEATH' suction zone from my Penguin 100 filter. I have plastic on the Suction covering about 70% of the thing yet it still spits out a current. He seems to be calmer with it off but at the same time I think he likes the water movement.

I've been hearing things about using upsidedown cups and such to encourage bubble nests... cuz half of the tank is calm but still enough movement to possible disrupt a bubble nest.

*Flails*

I want to know if he's happy!
