I just got a 180 gallon tank and an xp3 and ac110. Im sure this isnt enough so what else should I get? will adding another ac110 be enough? How should I set up these filters? Thanks!

water velosity has nothing to do with filtration really... you could baffle your filters output, and introduce almost TOTALLY STILL water into your tank... GPH has nothing to do with head velosity.... you could have 3" drains and returns and put 10000 gph through it, with little current.... remember that

Well, with all the good things I've heard and read about it, I would take a look at it. Why isnt it worth the money? Its got many advantages over other canisters out there. I personally dont have one, but Ive done a little research on it because I am planning to get a canister.

Just what I have read before. Plus I already have an xp3. If anything I would just get another xp3 over an xp5. But I will look into them. Thanks for the heads up. Ill try to find the old topic about them.
