    I have 2 x Eheim pro 3e canister filters for my 566L tank. I am going to stock with Afras. Are these enough to turn around 5x the tank volume?

    Good afternoon,

    I am not familiar with these filters and I do not know the gallons per hour (GPH). Hopefully someone will chime in soon. :)

    there are two models, and the larger of the models only does 240 gph so no, two of them will not be 5x turnover on a 125.

    I am too unfamiliar with eheims to say whether or not they will be enough for the tank.

    Usually this would be okay, not with africans though.

    I would suggest investing in the filter with the most capacity possible.
