    I have a Rena, A Fluval, and an Eheim all on my 75g. They are all good pumps. Of the 3 filters, the Fluval is my least favorite. It takes more maintenance than the others and is harder to prime.

    There's no way you can't afford a HOB. For a 20g tank, it's like the price of 1.5 trips to McDonalds. You are just being stubborn because you dread removing the UGF. Don't worry. It's not that...

    If he's got a Fluval 305, it probably has coarse filter sponges in front of the biomax. That should get him clear water.

    We need to know:Substrate, pH, and photoperiod.

    The ammonia in your tank is because the nitrogen cycle is not firmly established. Ammonia is always produced, but in a healthy tank, bacteria break it down into nitrites, and then into nitrates.

    That's also a good way to add carbonate hardness and increase your pH buffer. I like to keep a few freshwater clam shells in my tank for this purpose.

    The biowheel will help out, yeah. The Magnum 350 I had did not come with a biowheel. In your place, I would get rid of the carbon, add ceramic noodles/biomax instead and call it done.
