Not really overkill and nothing wrong with over filtration. I know discus keepers with fx5 on 90's

In my 65g overstocked community tank, I had 3 HOBs, a large Eheim canister & an XP3. Always had a spare filter to instantly cycle a new tank that way. Overfiltration is not a problem, especially with discus.

Just remember to service the canisters more frequently with discus than your normal tank inhabitants. Must still keep up with water changes, too.

Yes i do a lot of water change (20% everyday, thats right everyday and 50% once a week) and for my two xp3 filter im going to clean one each every two weeks, i dont wanna clean them both at the same time cause that gives a lot of stress on my discus...
