I got a power head today. A little concerned that it is way to much flow for my tank. It's a 10 gallon and I got a koralia 425. My lfs said it would be fine but it's giving my softys a lot of flow and my clowns look like they are having a rough time.

Yep, a little too much. The 240 would have been better.

I returned it and got the 240 instead. I took a video to see what you all thought but it won't let me post it.

What do you think?
I think it's still too much power. But this is my first time with flow. I think I put it in a good spot. My pulsating Zenya are at the opposite side of the tank and they seem to be liking it. The same with my torch.
