We purchased the Eheim and I absolutely love it! It was been running for a week now and my water is crystal clear and you can't even hear the filter running! I took a sample of the water when we bought the filter and the only thing that tested high was the nitrate so we bought some solution to get it down. I am going to have the water tested again today.

As far as my fish... I did research and found that as long as you keep Tiger Barbs in groups of around 7 they will not bother the other fish. They seem to be doing fine with the Mollies. I also read that the Ghost Knife will fit just fine in a 75 gal as long as he's the only big fine in there. Thanks for your input tho.

I have a group of 7 green tiger barbs in my community tank and they don't bother my other peaceful fish. They just play with and chase each other.

The best solution for high nitrates is water changes. Chemicals really aren't necessary and may actual cause more harm than good over time.
