Okay, these are the tanks - 90, 55, 55, 45, 37

These are the filters - xp3, xp3, 405, 305, ac110, emperor 400

Have you been able to get this resolved yet?

If not, maybe this will help.

Unfortunately, I go through the same thing myself. It's no fun, but good luck!

90- 2x XP3 (they do great together on my 120)
55- 405
55- ac110
45- emperor 400
37- 305

That's what I would do anyway.

Thanks for the input.

I was thinking

90 - xp3 + 305
55 - 405
55 (overstocked) - xp3
45 - ac110
37 - emp 400

BB - it's fun for me

Sounds good man. Really, all the equipment you're working with is pretty nice stuff and is going to work fine for whatever tanks you put it on.

You're a better fishkeeper than I am. I'll feed, test parameters, and do water changes all day long, but I cringe at the thought of verifying filtration on my tanks.

I'll PM you the next time I have to sort through mine;D. Hopefully, it won't be for a long time since the last QA/QC I ran on my filtration a few months ago.

I'm all about the planning. I have a mild OCD where I run scenarios in my head over and over. I make lists like its my job.

its the 6 P's - propper planning prevents poor performance

I'm a list maker myself. I even keep an aquarium log in Excel for all of my tanks.

I love it! You may want to edit it though. you got starred
