+1 to double the filtration. Another + 1 to QT
why does it say it has a max of an 80 gallon tank.
mine is alittle under 50.
Generally speaking, A filters flow rate is tested with no media in them. This is obviously not how a filter is run in the real world so when you add media the flow is limited.
When that media gets gunked up as is par for the course [But that's also when it is effective] the filters actual flow capacity retreats even farther from the laboratory conditions that the print copy on the box claims.
Floss is good Bio-max would be better IMO.

Pleco's do not belong in new tanks, either. They nearly always starve to death. I doubt he got stuck. They get in and out of very small places but he probably died and just ended up where he was due to water movement.
