As far as how many fish you have stuffed in that size tank your on the cusp IMO, as far as water quality goes if your over stocked bio-load wise you can answer that with testing your water

I have an Aquaclear 30 on my 10 gallon, and a Marineland BIOWheel 200 on the 40 gallon long, and I have to say this, the Biowheel 200 HOB is awesome. If you get rid of the filter cartridges, you have more then enough room to customize the filter media, and I strangely enough, like the BIOwheel but you can easily remove it. It moves a LOT of water per hour, and although we do have an ancient UGV on the right side of the tank, the biowheel 200 works wonderfully.

According to a calc, I am right at that point.

I just feel a filter that does 100 GPH is enough for the 10 gal. The 30 gal though is a different question. I suppose I could replace it and have the AC50 as a backup. Or just run two AC50s.
