This filter does an amazing job on the 5.5g and cycles the tank about 18 times an hour (prob an overkill to you experts out there) where as in a 20g it would cycle the whole tank 5 times/hour.
Do I go with more power or will my current filter be good enough?
depends of how often you plan to clean your tank and everything if you put in a filter thats build for 45 to 50 gallon tanks youll be in good shape. they cycle the water around 200 GPH
