    If you mean that you believe that you have significant room for other stock also. I disagree.

    So you think I should at some point upgrade that second AC 50 to a AC 70 and run two of those? At an absolute minimum I would run all three of those and considerably more [Like double that] would be required to be in my comfort zone for a large wide bodied waste factory like an Oscar.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    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.

    I'm also going to try to up the filters. I have another AC 50 but its on my 40G tank (that I want to take apart) and runs aside a shitty filter (a topfin 40 I think, which I don't trust too much).

    If you think its a real issue only running the AC 50 & 70, I COULD put the TF 40 on that tank as well (run 3 filters). I know the TF 40 doesn't solve that problem but it could help. If you think it won't make to much of a difference I'll leave it be. I don't really trust it running by itself on the 40g tank (though I'm sure it could, it did for a little bit before I got my 1st AC 40).
