I think they are the AQ500's?? With SA Cichlids I need GOOD filtration, but want to slow the current down a little. The AQ filters are CHEAP, so I am willing to give them a shot, but my AQ20 on my little hex tank is fussy and clogs up fast. Are the big ones more durable?

I have owned AQ500s, they are no different. They clog eventually. Don't get me wrong, they are extremely effective, I would be hesitant putting 2 on a large tank. I had one on my old 66g and I remember coming home to find the water level rising slowly. I was like....errrr....time for a cannister. Went to a H.O.T. Magnum. Great filter, too many issues.
In my opinion, 2 AQ500 would not cause too much water agitation as long as the water level in your tank is kept up, they are very smooth running and don't really cause too huge of a ripple effect on the water.

75G FW has been taken apart.
Just doing some reading for now to prepare the tank for a salt setup!
Can't wait!

I have an AquaClear150(30) It filters aquariums 20-30 gallons and filters at 150 gph. We've had this filter from a few years back and it still works really good. (I've now decided to set up the 20 gallon that has been sitting in our basement for 6 years) Will my filter be strong enough for 1 fantail goldfish?

On our 40 we have a fluval 305. In our 20L, 29, 55 and 14hex tanks we have Aqua Tech power filters and under gravel filters, all but the 20L have power head (s). In our 10 we have an Aqua Tech power filter and 1 Penn Plax Small World filter. In our 5.5 we have 2 Penn Plax Small World filters.

(Eventually on the 55 I'm getting a Fluval 405)
