ThatDB created the topic: Filtration

So Im going to upgrade from my 90gal to a 125gal and I want to hear some recomendations about filtration. Im already going to put an Eheim classic 250, and a quiet flow 20-40. What else can I use to keep the water crystal clear with 2 oscars, and a pleco while not breaking the bank.

2 oscars and a pleco is a huge bioload. The small 20-40 is really of little use. You should have another canister and 1 or 2 large hobs. Eheim Classic 600(2217) or Filstar xpxl and Aquaclear 110's. Remember crystal clear does not mean safe. You cant see harmful toxins and even crystal clear water can hold dangerous amounts. You need about 10lbs of bio media to convert ammonia output from your fish. FX6 would be the best choice, but pricey.

I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
