75gal

This will be a quick question so not my typicall rambling. I bought a rena filstar xp3 (rating of 350gal/hour) (man. rating) I bought this for a 55gal. I think I'll be gettin a 75 gal instead. Will this be enough? It will not be over stocked and it will be under stocked for at least 2 months. Thanks

I'm not too fond of XP's (found them to be prone to cavitation), but I've talked with people who've been successful with them. I prefer Fluval cannisters personally.

yeah, although you can reduce the chances of this by putting a bit of Vaseline on the seals.

350 gph is less than 5 x turn over. I would add another filter. Maybe a HOB (a/c 500 or so).

looks like its going to still be the 55gal. My wife doesn't want anything deeper than the 13". I'm still working on it though
