Filtering for my 220 Gallon tank... full of clowns

Posted By: Curtis
Date: Thursday, 25 July 2002, at 9:01 p.m.

I currently have in my 220 gallon tank

7 Bala Sharks
8 Clown Loaches
10 Tiger Barbs
1 Common Pleco

For filtration I currently have.

2 Whisper Model 3 Traid filters (Has a little attachment for bio filtration)
1 Magnum 350 Pro with BIO-Wheel 60 add-on
1 AquaClear Powerhead Model 402 - output 270 gph

The question I have .. is do I have enough filtration to keep everything going smooth... or should I add a EHEIM WET/DRY FILTER 2229 or maybe an EHEIM FILTER 2250 or both.. in addition to my current filters.

Let me know .. My fish are currently in the tank and I would like to provide enough filtration to keep them happy.
