I have 600gph on my 36g with community fish

I have on my 55 a filstar xp2. And an aqueon 75 hob. Each one does about 350-400gph. And on my 75 which I hope to set up this weekend. I will have an aqueon 75 and two aqueon 40. That will total to 800 gph. If you wanted to add filtration. Just get a good hob filter. But if moneys not an issue I would suggest a api filstar. Mine is so quiet I have to touch it to see if it works.

You know the xp2 doesn't do 350-400gph right? Read the box, it says full of media its rate is cut in half

Yeah. I didnt think it cut in half though. My hob has been broken for a while and just this has been sufficient.

Well I know the xp3 does something like 300gph and with media it drops to 185gph. Its my assumption that all are the same media wise

Sounds like u have it all planned +1
