You can usually find the koralia 750's cheaper on Amazon.

I would stick to the evolution ones if it were me. Plus you can get more gph from one, like the 750.

I only ran an AC50 on my 29g and it was fine for me, so an ac 70 will for sure be enough.

Hi depends on the amount of turn over you require? What is the capacity of your tank?

Two is generally a good idea in order to create a chaotic flow. It can be achieved with one large PH or two smaller ones. I have two 750's in my 54 gallon, and Carey used two in her 29.

Realistically, this would be more than enough. In a 30 gallon, you could easily be good with two of the koralia evo 550's.

30 gal x 30 turnover = 900gph. You would have that with the 550's.

I have the foam pad that comes with the aquaclear filters, a bag iof chemi pure elite which is carbon and gfo pretty much, and phosguard in a media bag for the phosphates. GFO is granular feric oxide and helps rid the tank of phosphates. The chemipure elite is a substitution for carbon. I used to have the biomedia rings but now that the tank is established I tossed them and am relying on my live rock for bacteria.

Is that any better? LOL I tried.....
