Hi everybody! I have a 75 gallon that is blacked out on all sides except for the front. There is no decor or subsrate and the only thing in the tank is a heater. I plan on puting one oscar in the tank with one fx4 filter. Is this to much filtration? Thank you!

I doubt thats a lot of filtration. Its probably a good amount of filtration.

I personally think it’s fine. Oscars can be messy fish!

Imo there's no such thing as too much filtration. The only problem that may happen is that the flow will be too strong. FX4s push out a lot of water, I'd recommend a spray bar.

FX4 is fine, there are different output you can use to change the flow. There are videos of diy spray bars, you can drill more and/or bigger holes to slow down the flow.
