It depends how many fish you have in the tank & how much waste they
produce - which is a product of how much you feed them. Suggest you google
for & read up on the nitrogen cycle to start with & understand that the
filter's primary function is to deal with chemical waste rather than solid
In principle that filter will support about 30-35 gallons with reasonable
stocking levels as long as you maintain it properly.
