    Double The Canisters Double The Trouble?

    I run two FX6's, one focused on biological filtration and on focused on mechanical/chemical filtration. The biological FX6 gets cleaned at the 6(ish) month mark and the other gets cleaned every 2-3 months but we have a decent bio-load and probably overfeed.

    I've had pretty much all of the Cascades and they were fine overall, a few minor problems here and there but they worked. I switched to completely Fluval and have had a 106, 206, 306, 406, FX4, and FX6 - they were all good. I currently run two FX6's on our 150 tall and couldn't be happier with...
