Thanks for the quick response neilfishguy. I'm new to plants but maybe I've got this wrong. I was under the impression that I needn't follow the 10x turnover rate we use in saltwater or messy cichlid tanks. I thought the plants didn't like the over the top turbulance and also acted as natural filters themselves. I failed to mention the CA cichlids are already are out except for my 4" oscar that will get a 55 to himself after all is said and done. Are all of you overfiltering at 10x the tank volume per hour? Final stocking on the 150 will be 30 cardinals, 6 cories, 1 BN, 6-10 otos, and Angel fish pair and a dozen or so rainbow fish.
