Should I use two filter media inserts?

I have a Penguin 150 on my 10gal tank and it has two slots for the sponge/carbon media cartridge. The manual even says I can put a second in there. Is there any point to using two? Maybe I should put a second one in there in about a week, then each week clean the opposite one, so each is cleaned every two weeks.....not sure, still a beginner. Thanks for your help!

Depends on your setup.

I see no reason not to. It will provide for more filtration and you can change the inserts at alternating times which is better for the bacterial balance in your tank.
