|New 90 gallon, old filter. Should i upgrade?|
I just upgraded to a 90 gallon from a 40 gallon tank i have had for 10 years. I thought my fluval 405 would have been sufficient, but now I'm starting to wonder, thinking of getting a Fluval FX5 but also thinking it might be too much. what to you all think Thanks allot.

It should be enough, but it does depend a bit on your stocking, and partially how well the water circulates the tank.
If you've got a lot of heavy waste producers you might want to upgrade the filter as well, possibly run both (alternate cleaning them).
If you're fairly lightly stocked maybe just add a HOB or a powerhead to the other end of the tank to encourage water circulation. If you've got a lot of decor and plants in the tank a powerhead might help so long as the fish like the added water movement.
It'll also depend on your filter cleaning habits .

I would get another filter and leave the old one on there with it.
