Filter baffle for strong currents!

What i did for a filter baffle was i got an older bio-filter from when my tank filter broke

Just be careful that it isn't pushing your motor to work harder. Sometimes baffles can do that, which will cause the motor to burn out. This doesn't look like it will though - look very smart, too, like it's part of the filter!

Very nice!!!

I did something similar with the filter in my Bowie's tank, he shows his appreciation with some very impressive bubble nests.
