Running 2 power filters on my 55g...
Is their any benefit in doing this? I have between 30-35 small fish ranging from few mollies and platys ,cherry barbs ,tetras and cories. This is a moderately planted tanked with Val's , couple of amazon swords a crypt and just bought some floating pennywort and watersprite.
I have both filters running on slowest flow and I'm starting to wonder if their is too much water movement for the floating plants as I've had these plants before and they failed miserably,but maybe also had to do with too much light as I was running 2t8 6500 bulbs at the time and have dropped to one ,had a bba problem and plants browning.
I would like to take one of the filters off but I'm scared it could start a mini cycle. The tank has been running for a little over a year. GH is 11 and ph runs 8.2-8.4. Should I remove one of the filters?
