quick question here ... I currently have a 55g with an AquaClear 300 filter. Now sposedly this is enough filter for my tank according to the stats for the AC300. But, it seems to me that by weeks end (ie: I clean out my filter once a week) the flow rate has definitely decreased ... I can tell a noticable difference in the water movement on the top of the tank.
So, with that said, I've considered a few options:
1. adding another AquaClear 300/70
2. Adding a Powerhead (just to move the water)
3. Adding a Canister filter
I think 1 is the cheapest solution and easiest to accomplish ( I can pick up an AC70 for around $22-24. But I considered going with a powerhead as they can move more water and can be positioned differently. The canister is a nice thought, but I'm not sure I want to invest that much $$$ in it.
Can anyone recommend or give pros/cons for the best solution?
