Also, don't run filter floss or foam in your eheims, it just clogs up super fast and slows them down. I just run coarse media in mine, you can let them run for a very long time this way.

We have a LFS here and he has an ADA 120-P (same as mine) 65G and he only has one 2217 on it and it is well stocked and looks great. I don't get all this filtration stuff, some people say you need 10x and other say you need less than 5x. Anyways, once I get it all set up I'm sure it will be decided.Thanks for your help, any other opinions appreciated also.
