    I want to overstock a 55 gallon Mbuna tank including Jewel Cichlids. What filter should I use?

    Jewels won't mix well with mbuna, I ran 2 aquaclear 70's or 110's on my 55's. I used UG filter plates, with one filter drawing through a lift tube on each plate. Kept debris from collecting under the plate, it ended up in the filter media and got rinsed out with water changes. IMO there's no such thing as too much filtration for a cichlid tank unless the current is so strong the fish are caught in the flow and flashing past the glass every few seconds... lol. Seriously though, strong flow/circulation is great for heavily stocked tanks.
