It would be a bit too large. Cloudy water has various causes, so you need to determine what is causing yours. It is rarely the filter. Cycling through the New Tank Syndrome, organic protein, copepods, heterotrophic bacteria, over feeding, over stocking, etc. Instead of replacing the filter, try vacuuming the gravel and changing 4-5 gallons of water. If the filter cartridge is clogged, this is a sign of too much food or too many fish in the tank so cut back accordingly. Also, add Marineland Bio Spira to boost your biological filter. Last, but not least, there are some good organic adsorbent products on the market you can add to your filter to help out with this issue.
