im just wondering if i could get some advice?My water seems to be fairly cloudy for some reason,i have an 80 gallon tank and i am using 2 power filters(the hang on type)1 is a whisper rated for 30-60 gallons and the other is a penplax cascade rated for 60-100 gallons so in total you could say that i have filtration for up to a 160 gallon tank.I have 6 clowns a couple dojos 4 corys 1 plec and 11 smaller cichlids.I have pristine water acording to my tests ,no amm,no nitrite,and low nitrate.I do a 25% water change every 2 weeks! my tank has been cycled and running for around 3 months now .I thought that i didnt have enough filtration so i bought the wisper filter but it doesnt seem to make any difference!I was thinking of buying a fluval 404 (i think thats what its called)Its a canister filter ,i would buy it if i knew it would work better then my other filters!Would a power head work at all to create more water c
