I'm not sure if the flow is going to be too strong.
I'm confused, if that filter works for up to a 70 gallon tank, I'm 30 gallons short of its rated limit.I don't think so. The AC's come with an adjustable flow knob and you could also put in a prefilter sponge on the intake tube to help reduce the flow. Is that the only filter you'll have on it? If so, you're slightly underfiltered as you will want at least 320-400 gph on it. The AC 70 has a turnover of 300 gph.
Thank you for the info el337. Now the calculation for 8 to 10, is it based on a fully stocked tank?They advertise that for how many gallons are turned over every hour (gph) without any media in it. Once you add in all the media, it slows down the flow quite a bit which is why people often recommend to get a filter that turns over at least 8-10x your tank size.
