Time will tell I guess. I'll keep an eye on it and see if I might need do do anything else.
EDIT: I went and had a closer look - it seems that when I replaced the hood etc., the baffle got knocked askew. I'm going to wait a few hours before I go in and mess with it. He seems to be having a fun time, though. I mean...if he really didn't like it, wouldn't he just go to the other side of the tank where there's no real flow?
If hes not getting flung down hard, its ok. I think they DO like it, sometimes. My big guy does and the bf's neurotic, constantly glass surfing plakat loooveess a stronger current to derp around in.
I would baffle it back up, just in case it blows out a fin (makes it rip/makes a hole), but if its just a slight knock-down, its not an issue.
And copper, I used hair ties, too, but they always leech color on me ;^;
Now I just jam it between the cover of the HOB filter and the filter itself and yell at it, no bands required... Also, no sanity, but hey. I can yell at a filter if I wanna! D:< Ragh!
