  1. Hi everyone. I'm excited! I got a new tank from CL. It's 55 acrylic and it came with stand, light and various filters - also some free decorations and rocks. It's in pretty good shape, just a couple of scratches on the top that won't show, and a weird coating on the bottom that looks like river rocks (or so I tell myself). I paid $180 which seemed pretty good until I got home and did some research about the filters. It came with a Whisper Power Filter 3, and a fluval 205 canister filter and I believe it's going to be under-filtered with these two. Can anyone tell me the gph of the Whisper PF 3? I have found conflicting info on it - ranging from 105 gph to 250. The fluval only does 105 gph, and while I know that you can have less gph with a canister, I don't think it will be enough. The guy I bought it from has a fluval 405 (264 gph), which he'd probably sell me. I think he'd give me the 405 in exchange for the 205 and some cash. But I still think it won't be enough. If I got the fluval 405 and the PF3 does indeed do 250, then that might work at (514 gph)?? So I guess I'm looking for advice on filtration for my new tank. Any ideas? Now for the exciting part - planning for new fishies. I'm planning right now on 2 ranchu and a school of maybe 10 white cloud mountain minnows, and lots of new plants. I'm hoping to make this a rather heavily planted, bare bottom hybrid, which will assuage my desire for a tropical jungle tank. I don't think I have the juice for maintaining 3 tanks! (Altho' that's what I said about having 2 tanks for the longest time). YAY!!
