I don't think so. I have a 45high with a moderate fish load and quite a
few plants that is running on only a UGF. The tank is fine. I have a
thick substrate 4-5" and vacuum lightly every week. I am also using two
very small powerheads (Hagen mini-pros) that are rated for 80gpm (or gph,
or whatever the units that all powerheads are rated at).
