I think you should get another filter. You could get another filter like the one you already have, or, you could get a bigger filter altogether. (I would do the first option). You generally want to have gph
rating of the filter(s) to be at least 10x the volume of the tank. (i.e., 550 gph
for 55 gallons). The filter you have has 330 gph
. If you have two of those, it would give you 660 gph
. More than you need, which is great. Some argue that gph
5x the volume of the tank is fine, but 10x is obviously better, and BIGGER is BETTER!!!!!!!!!
