So if Im good with a single 305 then thats the route ill go. I actually have a 405 on my 75 gal community and i have to keep it cut way back else it makey way too much current. So i thiught that the two 305's might have been a bit much, but I put my faith in that site. This is why I throw things to this site and take what feedback I can get. Thanks for saving me a few bucks and not creating a typhoon in the tank.
There is in my view considerable misunderstand among aquarists concerning filtration. Also, other factors play into it, such as live plants, the fish species, tank size, etc. Unless one plans large fish or those with a high bioload, adequate filtration is a good quality filter rated to the tank size, or even less depending upon specifics.
