Hi,

I have Fluval 304, 404 and a 405 filters (originally 404, then got the other two from a friend)connected to my 60G. I use a 15W UV sterilizer too. Is it too much for this tank?


The tank is very heavily planted with 55 tetras (25 Cardinals/8 Rumminose/22 Ember), 4 Corys, 3 Clowns and 5 SAEs besides a few Red chery shrimps.

Is it OK to add 6 Rosy tetras from my other tank (20 Tall) to this one?

Thanks
Essen

Well, it sounds like you've got real good circulation there. It might perhaps be overkill, but I don't see why it would be bad, unless the currents are so strong your fish can't swim. :)

As to your stocking levels, I'll let someone else chime in on it. Personally, it sounds a little heavy to me.

I agree.

I have a 75 gallon tank. I use 2x220 gph canister filters and an Aquaclear 300 gph hang on back filter. I'm thinking of adding a 400 gph powerhead for additional flow through a thick stand of vallisneria.

If your fish and plants aren't being blown all over the place, I think you're ok.
