+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.

Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
