my A.C. 50 filter for my daughter 29 gal tank went out ,so I had a A.C. 110 setting on the side,so I use that one for now until I get another one,but if that works fine on the tank I don’t think I need to get the peller for the a.c.70.[/b]

idk seems a bit overkill. can you dial down the flow rate? id suggest doing that and maybe tossing a sponge prefilter on there and call it good.

I use an AC 110 and an Eheim 2213 on a 30 with comps in the tank. I run the 110 full blast...what I like about this set-up is that if fish food isn't eaten in about 20 seconds it finds it's way to the intake of the 110 or 2213. The flow doesn't bother the comps at all

I also run two AC110s and two Eheim 2217s on a 90

That says it, too much flow. Fish should be given at least 2 minutes to finish their food.

While, in theory, one can't overfilter, it is easy to go overboard otherwise. I'm thinking of overspending upfront and electrical, over buying on food, and overworking on filter cleaning. If spending more money so you have to work harder is your thing , then go for it. The economy needs perking up!
