RENA Filstar XP 3 Canister question
Over and over again I see people on this site using and praising this filter. I currently have a 50 gallon breeder with a heavy bioload. I currently have 11 cories, 9 neons, 3 clown loaches ( i know), 2 lyretail swords, 2 mollies, 2 congo tertas, an otto, and a royal farlowella. My tap water has a nitrate level of 20ppm and currently my tank is between 10 and 20ppm. Right now I have a aquaclear 70 and an aqueon 30 (without floss or carbon on the aqueon) doing the filtration. I was wondering if I were to upgrade to the RENA XP 3 would I be able to change my nitrate situation? I have not lost any fish but I would like to lower my nitrate levels. I am also considering donating my clowns, congo tetras and mollies to the LFS in order to lower the bioload a bit. I'm really not trying to spend that kind of money right now but if it will make a difference I will find a way by selling some stuff I have laying around on ebay. Here is a quick pic of my tank too.
