    I just finished my new tank 200litre
    Im running 1 dophin c500 and another canister filter oceansun same specs as c500 ive removed all the mechanical media from the filter and reolaced with biomedia(ceramic rings and leca) and added prefilter to the canister for the mechanical filtration.
    I also have a sebo 1200liter per hour power head with filter wool to polish water. Will this be enough for the 200 liter tank.
    This filtration did work or my standard 3 ft 100 ltr tank but im double the volume now

    Will depend on how many fish you decide to add, but I don't run that much filtration on any of my 4 foot tanks.
