My 55 is filled to the bottom edge of the black trim at the top, and the AC50 moved the pleco's cucumber this morning when I dropped it in a little to far over. I dont mind the HOB
's, and am not looking for easier, mearly to replace one of the HOB
's. I am looking to setup a saltwater tank, and will need a filter for it. I will deffinately keep an HOB
on the tank to help with the dissolved oxygen levels in the tank, but am looking for something to place the return a little lower in, and possibly filter more near the bottom where some of my fish hang out.
We currently have 5 black mollies (2 regular, 1 sailfin, and 2 lyretails), 4 guppies, 3 dojo loachs, 3 khuli loachs, 2 pleco's, 5 platy's (4 mickey mouse, 1 silver with red tail), 2 glass cats, 1 baby black mollie, 1 baby guppie, 2 black skirt tetra's, and 2 bleeding heart tetra's. I think that is our complete list, it sounds right. I know the filters work great, the water is clear as ozarka water, and the perameters are all good. Not sure of exact numbers, will test tonite.
