I'm in the process of cycling a new 125 gal 6' tank that I'm planning putting a colony of fronts in. I just want some opinions. I'm attaching a picture. My main concern in the water flow. I have a emporer 400 on the right side of the tank. I also have a fluval fx5 canister with the intake and the middle and return on the top left of the tank. I have the stock return with 2 jets, one pointed a little up and at the front glass about a foot from the left corner and the other pointed up and to the right wall of the tank. I have 2x300 watt heaters on a Ranco controller. The light is a 36" with a 10k bulb and a actinic bulb on a timer for set to be on for about 6 hrs in the evening.

Is the flow from the fx5 returns ok? It seems to be pretty swift in spots at the top of the water but fairly calm near the bottom. Should I build a spraybar to slow the current some? Any other opinions, advice, suggestions?

I use two AClear 110s in my 135 frontosa tank.
You might want to post this question in the tanks section as you might get more response as this is not really a frontosa question.
