Question on filters

I was wondering what is the rule of thumb when it comes to filter size
I have a 30 gal tank, trying to figure out if an external whisper 170 is big enough for a 30 gal tank

Most people here use LR and LS for filtration with 10x gph water flow. 1 to 2 lb of LR per gal should be all you need (plus a skimmer)
