Just picked up one of these cheap off of Craigslist. Think it will be too much for my 29 gallon? I'm going tonus it to drive my ista max mix co2 reactor so that will slow it a tad. Right now I have a sunsun 302 and a koralia 425 in the tank. I plan to leave the sunsun and take the circ pump out.

It won't be too much. I'm using one on a 20 long.

Thanks! I plan to clean it up good and then run it in a bucket of 10:1 water:bleach for a couple hours. That should clean it up good you think? Was last used in a salt tank. There's a few dried up feather duster worms and algae in there....

Some CLR would probably work better.

Me too... It is nice to have a reserve of flow to turn up as the tank grows in...
