Sounds like a lot of flow! If you are using a standard AGA tank, be careful with the placement of the 5 holes if they are all on the back panel. I have see people crack tanks if they are too close or the plumbing pulls the wrong way on the glass. I even cracked a 15L with 2 bulkheads, luckily the tank was empty at the time.
