Currently i have a

Ehiem Pro 3e (canister)

*filters 5times of the tank water

Ehiem Powerline XL (internal)

*filters 3times of the tank water

Total is 8times...

Can I add in another canister like a ehiem standard which filters another 2-3time more?

As I would like to add more media substrate...my waters are clear now...

Oh...I meant I got 7goldfishs and each size is 3-4" body length

Abt 100 gallons as the water level is only 17" height instead of 24"(2ft)

How many time of cycle is ideal?

I figured 7 GF. :D

You want at least 10X filtration. With a canister you can get away with a little less but with such a large tank, another filter would be nice.

Why do you keep the water level so low?

I would love to increase the height to 2ft but ex-owner uses 4" for the lightings and top filter and I have removed all these stuff but I dare not remove the top bracing...so the waters is at 17"

Got my ehiem 2028 (used set)

Ex owner could have used it for marine tank and the top gasket is totally worn

and I had a swim in my living room!

Did thought of returning it but the gasket is readily avail so I bought it and with some ehiem vasaline..

The seal works!

*left is old gasket;

*Right is NEW & thicker..
