hi guys, i have a 55 gallon tank thats just about at the end of the cycling process and i want to add another power filter. I have a shitty aqua tech filter on it now but i wanna add another to help clean the tank. I was gonna add a ac500 power filter and use that at the same time as the aquatech for double duty. Is there anything i should know about adding a second filter? will it mess anything up with my current set up. and by the way, this is for the tank i plan to use for my p's when i get them very soon.

Leave the old filter, it will be farther along in the cycle. Toss on the new one, let the tank finish cycling and you are ready.

Just plug it in. I did the same with my penguin 330's. It won't bother your current setup or cycle.

There is never "too much filtration"...add your new AC500, it will do great!

Never rinse/change both filter biomedia at the same time so benefical bacteria stays at the same level!
