Is this enough filtration for 130gallons?

I got a Marineland C530 canister filter second hand for $75. According to Amazon, it has enough filtration: 100 to 150-Gallon/530 GPH. But aqadvisor says its not for enough for much at all.

I think Ive heard one should get double the filtration the labels say. Is this accurate.

I'd aim for 8-10x tank turnover. So 1,040 to 1300 GPH. Looks like that's about two of those.

You could also add an HOB with the 2 canisters and you'd be fine.

Good idea. I do have an extra large HOB filter I could easily add.
