I have a aquaclear 70 on a 45ish gallon. But I've also seen Byron post about too much filtration isn't always better, and that my fish are probably already "blown around" too much by that size, so I've put mine on the "lower" setting. Mr. Bamboo shrimp was out last night, picking off the java moss. I squirted some of the powder shrimp food on it, and I hope he got some from it. The other fish also try to grab what they can of that floating powder, and like all food, it creates a feeding frenzy in my tank. I'm hoping if he's made it as many months now as I've had him, he'll survive, but it does bother me that he is now not even filter feeding. He used to do that by holding on to a leaf. Maybe he'll go back to it again, but for now, he is hiding inside the piece of chollo wood I have, which is a cactus and has lots of holes and is basically hallow - cool piece of wood.
