Here's my dilemma I have 2 AC 110's and the wife bought herself a 20g and stand at the LFS. I rather not go and buy another filter as I have 2 that are from established tanks. She wants to do a small community tank with some schooling fish. Not sure what yet. Anyway can I put the 110 on the 20g or it that too much?

I love these AC's!!

EDIT:
Not sure if this comes into play but she wants a heavily planted tank. I'm letting her do her thing I'm just helping along the way... She can do it, I have faith.

Hmm, how many GPH is the 110?


I have a 150 on a 10 Gallon, and that's IMO barely overfiltering...


It will be fine but I do not think it's sufficient filtration.


(If 110= 110GPH)

Oh.

That's great filtration then!


Medium flow with plants breaking the output will do )

that'll be fine... if it's wisking everything around too much turn it on its lowest setting. but, if i've got my facts right, puffers generally can't handle too much flow... so be a little careful.

Yeah she changed her mine. (head spinning) she likes those little neons and other tiny little fish. All colorful. She wants some of those and a lot of plants. She's new to the hobby like me so she's on the PC every night looking at fish. It's cute. I'm letting her pick her fish and do her thing. Of course I'll step in if I see an issues. She has a vision.

Heavily planted, thin twig like DW with moss around it and moss balls.

So bottom line... The 110 I can use so I don't have to buy another filter? Like I said I have 2 110's already.
