Hi, i was wondering if this is good enough for my 108g tank. I have a magnum 350 just like to know if i should buy something to go along with this or not. Would like to put piranha in here soon. Thanks to anyone that responds.

I would add a backup. It can provide you with good double filtration plus if one breaks down you always have soemthing running. just a thought.... :nod:

Cool , do you think an Aquaclear 500 would be sufficient? also how many Red Bellys do you think i could have in it ? i have a 33g setup with 3 right now they are growing little babys.

I run the magnum 350 on both my 75 and 90 along with one AC 500 on each as well. Go with the AC 500. I love these filters!!

You can get them for $30.00 each at Pet Solutions

I've seen them priced as high as $75.00 locally. It's a good buy!

I alnternate media chages between the magnum and the AC 500.

I would also run a powerhead. I use one Marineland 1140 on each tank.

Tanks are always crystal clear and water quality is perfect!

A 108 gallon tank would be enough to house 4-5 redbellies for live. But you could buy about 10 or so, and let them weed out the weakest ones...
As for filtration: the more the better, and there's no such thing as too much filtration. Eheims are probably the best, but very pricy. I don't know about the other brands: all I have is Eheim

If you are going to have a shoal of pygos you should have 8 to 10 times turnover per hour. I dont know what the turnover is for the magnum but I would assume it to be 350 gallons per hour and you should have 800 to 1000. If it were me I would add 2 ac500 and you would be set.
