Hi folks. I have a stocking question of my own. I have a 55gal. 7 giant danios, 6 Venezuela Corys, 1 rubbernose pleco and 3 platys. Aqadvisor says I'm at 105 percent. For filtering I have an aquatech 30-60 gal and and aquatech 5-15 gal.running togeyher which according to them only does 86percent of the job. It seems according to some of the posts in this thread that I should be fine. Is Aqadvisor over causious? Thanks.

Just an opinion but I over filter my tanks, especially overstocked tanks like yours.

Huge fan of sponge filters. A $15 airpump and $6 sponge filter would add plenty of filteration. There is one sponge filter option on aqadvisor i’ve seen. Add that to the formula and see what that does.

In 2 of my tanks, I unplug my hob when I do anything over a 25% WC. On several occasions I have forgotten to plug back in, for up to 4 days. The sponges have kept the cycle with no issues.
