It's not that hard to bypass the fuge with some of the flow and therefore have a proper fuge flow rate. It can even be made adjustable!

Add a bulkhead to the baffle before and after the fuge. Connect the 2 bulkheads with a pvc pipe and put a gate valve in the middle. Now you have a bypass with flow control. You can pass as much or as little water through the bypass as you want and therefore control the water passing through the fuge.
