Even better. I was a little mistaken in my research. I was actually thinking a 405 and thought that it was going to be underrated for the tank and the fish that I was thinking of. (I bounced the numbers off of a website that I ran up on and thats what it gave me). So I plugged in the dual 305's and it was happy, thats why I was thinking that. 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.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
