When is enough?

For your average tank with HOB filters, I would just shoot for around 10x turnover. I think you're fine, as long as you're getting no ammonia or nitrites.

I would think about maybe upgrading to a bigger tank for those parrots soon

I've been dying to get the approval of my parents to upgrade the tank but they won't budge so I need to think of something soon later on!

You could always try to rehome them and stock your 29 gallon tank with appropriate fish.

With Geoff on that. You never know what the future holds, you may never have the appropriate home for them.

I believe Parrot fish get around 10 inches. That's big, so they will need a large tank if you wish to keep them.

You have a pic of this? How did you fit the HOB's on the tank? Is one on the front or the side? And with those koralias I can't imagine how much movement is going on in the tank.

Where could you even put another filter?

The two HOBs fit right next to each other on the back. The EheI'm is under the tank. Koralias are in the tank.

An aquaclear 110 and a penguin 200 or is it a 350? There isn't a penguin 250.

Imo no matter how many filters you put on there, it's not going to make a 29 gallon tank any bigger for 6 soon-to-be 10" fish.

I currently have a 29 gallon stocked with 6 lovely juvenile high quality blood parrots and equipped with two Hydor Koralia 425s, an Aquaclear 110, an EheI'm 250 and a Marineland Penguin Biowheel 250! Both the Aquaclear and EheI'm use Seachem Matrix while the EheI'm also uses Purigen! Should I add more filtration? Thanks.
Yes. As others have said, honestly, the amount of filtration you have is irrelevant because they are going to grow way too big for a 29g. Heck, even one wouldnt be appropriate.

There isn't any need to add more filters. You have more than enough. Now you need a tank that is big enough for the fish.
