    So I decided to settle with two AC50 for my 60 Gallon setup.

    Now someone told me that I might not have enough agitation or might have dead spots om the tank.

    I'm thinking of getting a fluval q2 airpump and do a sponge filter or add a wavemaker either fluval cp1 or cp4

    What should I do?
    Should I do both?
    And should I buy the fluval cp1 or cp4?

    If your getting two I think you might have enough...they're both rated up to 50 gallons, and essentially you have 100 gallons.

    You should have enough with the 2 filters but if you want to add more than I would just get a cheap wave maker like suggested ubove. I think they are under $10.

    Ok thanks guys. I might just get the circulation pump.

    I have someone ready to sell either cp1 or cp4 veru cheap.

    Is there such thing as too much? I would go with cp4 if that's not too much since it's only $5 more
