So along the same Vein as the OP, i also have a 29 gallon tank, but from what i have read, my tank is horribly overstocked, i have a 2-3inch Common goldfish, a tiny(an inch or less) Black Moor Goldfish and a 1-1.5 inch Fantail Goldfish...they are all very young

I currently have a Top Fin 30(i've read it's the same as the Classic Whisper 30) and WILL be upgrading within the next couple days....

Would you Also recommend a Aquaclear 70 for me? or with Goldfish would it be better to go with something like the Aquaclear 110, i'm just a little worried the current will be too much since the Goldfish are so young

Ridewithme38 - I dont use an Aquaclear, but have 2 that came with the (used) tank I bought... one day I plan on setting them up.

In the meantime, an Aquaclear 70 would be a great choice for a 29 gallon. Its a little overkill, but you can never have enough filtration, especially seeing your high bio-load. The Aquaclear 70 is rated for up to a 70g tank, btw.

One thing Ive noticed about the Aquaclear, is the media is really cheap! And people rave about their performance.

I use AC110 on my 29 and 33's but I love overkill with filtration I use 2 fx5's on my heavy stocked 80 gallon

I say go as big as you budget allows and if the current is too much you can always find a way to slow it down

I have used a Marineland Penguin bio-wheel 200 in my 29g tank for the past few years and it has been good to me.

I say double what the filter claims. If the filter says up to 70 then I would use it on a 29 gallon, which is what I did when I bought my penguin.
