Howdy fellas just upgraded my filtration to a jbl e 1501 my tank is just over 150 litres.

The tall plants are swaying a good bit noting to violent tho.

Fish seem to love it but I was just woundering would it have any effect on the plants .

Craig

If you want good plant growth the standard is ten times the capacity of your aquarium. So I think what you have is sufficient filtration
