Nope, not in my opinion, esp. since I am running an XP3 on my high light, CO2
injected heavily planted 55!
I think probably the cause of most of our MTS
problems relate to more tanks to solve problems we run into along the way. We learn that this fish or that fish just can't get along, but we don't want to get rid of the fish, so we get another tank to suit the troublemaker, and MTS
is born. Then we take all that we learned and help others here on AA!
What'll happen to you is that you'll see a 44 or a 55 for sale in the paper or at a yard sale, and you'll think, "well, I already have a filter sitting around, might as well...."
