Listed filter tank size vs what I’m reading here.
Hi All. I have a 55 gal tank with an eheim 2074. Filter is rated for 92 gal. In one manual the pump is listed at pushing 396 g/h. In another manual the flow rate with media is 154.54 g/h. I also ordered a co2art se regulator kit. And light is the fluval plant 2.0 Will be keeping 10 pearl gourami and a school of harlequin rasbora and a group of panda Cory.
Now here I think I will be all set but I read that flow rate should be 10 x the tank size. I have a couple of small power heads but is that needed? Why does this filter show its good for a 92 gallon tank if the rule of thumb should be 10 x the tank size? What should I do now?
I'm trying to think but nothing happens.
