It always helps to have extra filtration! Even though the filter may be rated for you tank in the long run as it wear down its start putting on 3/4 to 1/2 of what it originally Put out in my experience. I highly recommend the Aqua clear 70. That's what I have on my cycling 55 gallon and that thing is BEAST! It shoots out water! Also in term of oxygenation it never hurts to add an air stone also on top of your plants and filter you should be getting enough. Just gage it upon your fishes behavior.xsvlt1 said:I kind of figured that with the balas they came with the tank though. Asfar as everything else it should be fine though right? And should I look into bigger filtration options too? I do have several plants and plan on adding one or two more to help with oxygenation
Yes, try to rehome the bala sharks and the CAE and maybe the pictus also. If you're running HOBs, your GPH should be 8-10x your tank size.xsvlt1 said:I didn't know that about the cae. What would you recommend to fix it all? Get rid of the 3 and go with what I have left?
Any Petco or Petsmart should have it. But for the best buy I would buy online. Dr. Fosters and Smiths usually have good deals!xsvlt1 said:That's good to know. Any recommended places to shop for that particular one?
