I am using 2 opposing in my refugium and I prefer to run them without the cover as it causes a perfect turbulence for tumbling Chaeto. Only problem is one of them keeps kicking the impeller out. Is there a secret for keeping it in? Yes I know its not meant to run without the cover, but works perfect with one and semi for the other.

thanks
Ben

No, this is how it corrects the direction of rotation, the prop flies out and in falling back after hitting the cover it gets the right rotational direction. Short of a custom made cover that would just stop the prop I can't think of anyway to make this work.
