Are two filters better than one?
My present tank comprises of a medium sized bala shark, 3 small angels, a plec, some small bottom feeders, a pearl gourami, 3 thick lip gouramis and a guppy.
I have these annoying particles floating around in the tank and it's bothering me. It is a Hagen duo deep 800 and is powered by a fluval 205 but I am beginning to think the 205 is not a good filter. After taking advice, I have changed my filter media around and I am hoping for an improvement. However, my feeling is that it won't get better. I have done lots of water changes. It just seems to me the water isn't filtering around the tanks fast enough. I have cleaned all the filter out including the pipes- messy job!
Would anyone recommend a second filter like a fluval 3 or 4 to improve the set up? Perhaps I am being to fussy.
Any advice appreciated.
