So far it seems to be doing good. It's came with media an the filter pads. Also two double switch which on the box says not included... It didn't take to long for me to figure out how to set it up other then the stupid tubing was all in a circle so getting it to turn was kinda hard.

I also have an aquaclear 30 and an undergravel filter powered by a powerhead rated at 235gph. My current stock is 6gold barbs, 2 breeding kribs, 1bnp, and 3 sturbai cories. So does anyone have an opinion on if I could get a couple more Cory, even just one for a better school.

Although I approve of your stocking, I don't count on aquadvisor to steer me in the right direction when stocking a tank. I've seen some gross errors from that site.

Oh no I agree 100% it's only a suggestion tool. But do you think I could get one or two more Cory in the group?

I should probably add in that my kribs have bred before and are going to again.

I think adding the cories would be fine, get 2-3 more should be fine.

Let you eyes and nitrates tell you if your numbers are still good and there is lots of swimming room depending on which level the fish you want swims at in your case the bottom level then you should be fine

Alright thank you. There is some aggression from my kribs to my cories right now. But i don't no if getting more cories would help or just make it worse.
