I have 2 6100 on a multicontroller, and want wider flow for my 48x30x30 tank. How much will it cost to swap out for a 6200 screen for wider and more flow? or do you recommend cutting out some teeth of the current 6100 for more wider flow?

thx

I think you are looking for part 6200.130 which can be bought here http://tunze.com/149.html?&L=1&C=US&user_tunzeprod_pi1[predid]=-infoxspare_9999.999
I dont think cutting the teeth will get you what you are looking for as the size of the outlet is what is different

will this work as far as spreading out the flow?

Yes it should widen the flow path coming out from the pump while "slowing down" the flow a bit
