well yes, they are rated as 350gph, but it seems like its putting out even more than my 500gph canister. My tiger barbs love it since they are really fast swimmers, but my other fish (two angel fish and seven synodontis petricolas) get tossed around like ragdolls
. The petricola catfish look like are going to have a heart attack swimming so hard just to stay in one place. I took out the powerhead cuz i felt like they were struggling and needed a rest.
Ya think i should put it back in? This is my first 55g tank, so I may be over reacting. The petricolas are still fairly small (3/4"-1") so I dont know if the flow is too much for them or no?
Thanks mr_X, always appreciated
