I just found out!!!!

I just found out a 37gal tank will fit on my stand...so I was planning on using a 29gal but thought that was kinda small and would love to use 37 tank but my hob filter is rated for 75gal (bio wheel 350) do I have to upgrade?

I wouldn't think you need to upgrade, what's it's gph rating? If it's around 5-10 times of your tanks capacity, you are golden

I try for 2x at a min for HOB's IMO you'll be ok remember you cant over filter if i recall the 350 is 200gph Go with it, if need be get another or upgrade Is this the same as filter yours? If so you'll be ok
