Aquaclear 110 on 36G

Okay, so I have a 36G bowfront tank right now running with a Aqueon Quietflow 30 and a Marineland Penguin 150. I like to keep my water extra clear so I was looking into other HOB filters and see tons of love for the Aquaclears.

Now I know the Aquaclear 70 has a rating closer to the size of my tank, however, I would like to have a little more filtration and was considering the Aquaclear 110.

It this worth it? Is it too much filtration?

You can run an AC110 on the tank just fine. You can dial back the flow and/or break fins off the impeller to bring the current down to a more manageable level, if needed.

Like was asked, what fish? If you wanted to keep high current fish or high bioload fish than it would be good. If you wanted to keep a standard community tank then the AC70 will do the job.

That's the thing, my tank is a little overstocked right now. My girlfriend suprised me with a few fish I wanted without realizing that it would be too many for my tank. It currently has in it:

1 Angelfish
3 German Balloon Rams
2 Bolivian Rams
2 Odessa Barbs
3 Kribensis
2 Opaline Gouramis
2 Otocinclus
2 Corys

I know it's a lot but everyone gets alone so far. The tank is planted as well. Small plants cause I just started but water wisteria, water sprite, different kind of water sprite that I have floating, java moss, and a Marimo miss ball.

I would highly recommend u raise the school of odessas and cories 6+. I would personally do the fluval 306, best filter ever. Its SOOOOOOO much quieter than the HOBs.

Yes to te filter... but mayhem may ensue with all those cichlids in 36g.
Set the filter to low.. perhaps cut back on cichlids and up your corys and barbs.

Just an update.


The 110 absolutely did not fit on my tank at all lol. So I took it back and exchanged it for the 70 model. Still seems like a nice filter so far.

oops I see I posted a little late. I have that filter and I was going to say that it pushes a lot of water even on the lowest setting. plus I think most of those fish you have appreciate calmer waters. anyway looks like you got your filter situation resolved.
