Yeah i was about ready to just buy 2 Ac110's and not try to fix the damn thing. Its louder than an ac110, totally over designed, which gives it many more points of failure/leaking, the lid fasteners are terrible as are the hose clamps.Ac's are great filters i think you'll be fine with 3. Like tlindsey suggest just test your water as the fish grow. If you want to add to the bio and increase mechanical filtration order some 30ppi poret foam from swiss tropical and cut it to fit. Its much better than the foam blocks that come with the filters.
I hated my fx6 too btw
Sorry for the rant lol.
I'll give it one more shot before scoring some Ac110.
I'm also trying to get some live plants going but the pleco eats everything other than amazon swords lol.
