Enough filteration??

Postby trevor33 » Mon Sep 02, 2013 4:13 pm

I have a all ponds solution 2000ef for my five foot by two foot tank should be enough but I'm not sure if its my lights not long enough and strong enough but one side seems cloudy the external filter can do up to a 1000 litre tank so should be enough, but should I add another external or could it be the lighting not long enough many thanks.

Malawi are very dirty fish and you can never have too much filtration. One should be enough if you cleanit out regular and keep a good water change routine but more would be better.

It is always good to have 2 running anyway. If one breaks down then you always have the other one that can probably cope with the tanks bioload without feeding until the filter is fixed.
