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

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

    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.

    Im 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
