Is a Duetto DJ-50 filter enough for 5G

I'm moving from the world of large tanks to the world of nano tanks, like the 5G I'm planning. I have a Duetto DJ-50 lying around and I was wondering if that would be considered enough filtration for a 5G. Technically it's rated for a 10G tank, but that's manufacturers ratings and it really doesn't mean much. Here's a link to it: http://www.marineland.com/sites/Mari...=1995&mid=3226

Thanks,
Harry

I would say it is enough for a 5gl if its rated for a 10gl- its not that bad of an idea to overfilter a tank. The only thing I don't really like about it is the colour- it sorta stands out more than I would like in my own tanks.
