I have a 2 in Oranda in a 10 gallon tank (Only temp) but i dont have the 20gallon yet. But his filter in the 10 just isnt cutting it. What should i get to keep my water clean. I have been doing water changes everyday and the water is still cloudy.

PS this is the oranda that was sick. he has made almost a 100% recovery :) Thank you for all of your help :):l24:

glad to hear that:), until bigger stronger setup.. just keep up with the water change, if time permits just bump it up to acouple water changes, that should help out alot:)

I would go ahead and get an aquaclear 50. It will be a good bit of flow so you may need to modify it a little but you will be able to use that on the 20g tank as well.

If the flow is too much for your fish in a 10g you would just need to put something on the outflow to diffuse it so it doesn't push him around the tank. It's easy to do with a little plastic.
