    Do you have fish in the tank? What kind of bacteria supplement are you using? What kind of filter do you have? If it's an HOB, I would think a single should suffice. And what's a 20+ gallon tank?

    no fish yet! i added "special blend" by microbe life (which smells like btw). i have 2 filters.. one is a canister filter and the other just a normal sponge filter. whats HOB? and my tank is 90 litres so im not sure how many gallons that is but i do know 20 gal is 75L so i put 20+ hehe...

    Ah, I see. Ok, a little over 20 gallons so I see what you mean. lol

    I don't really know much about the Microbe Life but I'd think it's ok that you didn't add the dechlorinator.

    HOB is a hang on back filter.

    Yes, they hang on the rim of the tank and the water flows out of the output. Personally, I'd think you have enough aeration from the sponge filter since I think it creates bubbles up to the surface and from the spray bar from the canister if you have it.
