Hey guys I spot on another forum on here that people where saying more filtration is better? I didn’t want to highjack their post. So it got me thinking should I get more maybe an air powered filter ? Im running a 30 g tank with 2 gold fish and 2 plecos(yes I know tank is to small for the fish working on that) I’m running a penguin 200 hub filter with 2 filter cartridges and a bio wheel and that’s it. What do you guys suggest or is that enough? I don’t want crazy expensive either

With a heavy bioload I would add another filter. The penguin 200 has only 200 gph giving you almost 7x the volume of the tank per hour. For HOBs you want to aim for 8-10x. For goldfish and plecos, I would go extra. You can add a sponge filter or an internal filter, they're on the cheaper size.
