But if flowrate is high and filter wool is not doing the mechincal filtration well enough, dirt will start pushing through and they will all start to choke the media underneath. Fast flowrate work well if the surface of the mechincal filtration is huge. If small chances of clogging is higher.

Just the way I keeping my fishes.
Bro Koji. I agree with u. We do not want to choke our filter system. After reading this thread, i hv the urge to make my sump (last 2nd comp) into a Algae Scrubber as seen in Youtube. May yield positive result in reducing ammonia, nitrite and etc. Will update pics here once my new tank is ready early March.
