i just redid the spray bar in the 110 where the clowns are. previously i had a homemade one near the surface which created lots of surface agitation which i think was good for what THAT does; sadly, the substrate of the tank accummulates so much crap (i've noticed since doing small water changes every few days due to the medicine and so on) that a couple of days w/o vacuuming creates more crap than you can believe.

soooooo....today i reinstated the original spraybar and placed it vertical on the front wall of the tank near one end....this creates a lot of current through all levels of the water right down to near the substrate but
