    Your filtration sounds good. You should be aiming for 3x - 5x turnover with cansiters and you're at 4.7x.

    does anyone know anything about an aqua tech 30-60 and how much water it turns over?

    330 gph. And since it's a regular HOB filter it really is only good for up to a 33 gallon tank.

    Or if you don't want to use the aqua-tech (it's a walmart brand, so I'm not sure I would trust it) and just want one canister filter you could go with one of these:
    Filstar xp2
    Fluval 304
    Eheim 2026
    Viaaqua 650
    Cascade 1000 (I have the larger version of this on my 75)
