Okay so I am being given a 55 gallon soon for a texas (either cyano or carpintis), and with the 55 it's coming with an AQ110, I already have an AQ110 from my old 90 gallon as well as an Eheim 2026 and an AQ 50.

Would putting the 2 AQ110s and the Eheim Pro ii 2026 on the 55 be too much filtration for a 55 with basically one cichlid in it and perhaps dithers?

Just curious :popcorn:

For a single Texas, I'd say just one a110 would be enough. In regards to too much filtration, that doesn't exist! :D

That's true, but I figured with my own experiences with one 110, that the effects wouldn't present itself with a wet pet because of their considerable size.

That and 110's are adjustable from around 180gph to 500gph so there's a lot of wiggle room.

I agree though, you don't want your fish mashed against the sides for the sake of filtration.
