Might be interested in buying your 110's if the price is right. Congrats on your new filter...you will love it.

How big is your tank? I'm putting mine in a 75 and am not at all concerned. On a 30 I think you would be in trouble.

On the 75g? It should be fine. I've heard of people using them on 55g's with bad luck. Spray bars would solve the problem. Mines going on a 90g native tank so I need LOTS of filtration. That Pet Place has the cheapest price that I've seen. Just FYI.
