I have done a ton of research on this but haven't been able to figure out how much dwell time is too much. I stumbled upon a couple of great deals, a Penn plax 700 canister for $50 and an 18 watt coralife turbo twist for $60. The turbo twist recommends min 200 max 400 gph but the penn plax is rated at 185gph so will be lower with media. Would that much dwell time have negative effects on the water? Or would it actually be more effective...any educated answers would be appreciated!

Thanks for the response. Yeah I've gathered the same from what I've read just wasn't sure if there is too slow. Forgot where I read it but someone had a theory too much dwell time could almost like bleach the water...no hard facts. Still got me wondering though

I agree, I've never used one but I'm setting up a tank with an electric blue jack dempsey and I've heard they do them wonders. Plus can't beat the price. Thanks for the opinions.
