Default re: Filtration Capacity...This is ONLY a Test...

The return line was run back through the old inlet fixture to allow me to fine tune it beyond the head flow rate, and that was set in the chasis of the old filter so that the outflow would be just like it was when the old filter was still on. This was to keep it as close as possible to the original regimen, the only other change being that the water flows to the top for the overflow and not into the old intake.

The water looks great so far, and I used almost all of what i had in there. But with so much more new volume I will simply have to wait to see what it does over time. I don't think I will do a 50% water change every two days. It just depends. For now, here are some pics of the tank. I'll give updates as I have them...
