Cichlids

Hello everyone. I have a new 55 gallon cichlid tank as of right now there are twenty two fish. I have two 55 hand on filters a power head a in tank filter and a gravel filter. Do I have enough filtration for this over stocked tank?

Add up the gph you should be at 550 gph or more. All my tanks are at least 10x the gph and packed with as much bio media I can fit.
