How to tell if you have enough filtration
I figured it was based on tank size and bioload. I have a 75 gal high tech planted tank with 5 dwarf plecos (4" each), 8 rams, 4 dwarf honey gouramis, 1 big goyder river rainbow, and a dozen other assorted smaller fish.
I run an Eheim 2217 and admittedly the intake is in the back behind some plants and probably should be raised a little. I also have a Koralia powerhead that is plenty strong so I face it somewhat against the front glass to avoid uprotting small plants in the foreground. My plants are starting to fill in pretty well and I know the Koralia will work well for flow even if my plants get larger.
I still see some floating particles and other debris in the tank. I am feeding black worms, flakes, carnivore pellets, and algae pellets daily.
I am wondering if I need a second Eheim 2217 on this tank. I read another member's comments that filtration and flow are commonly confused and people end with more filtration (canister filters) than needed when all they really needed was a powerhead for better flow.
Interested in what others are running on their stocked 75 gallon system and why.
