Two filters, you'll get clearer water faster and, if one fails, you might not have to come home to a tank of departed fish. I wish I could run two, but I have a wet dry...those pumps are pricey.

I say use two if you can afford the $2.50 or something extra for your power bill.

My apologies, Nomel mkes good point . My post was a little misleading.
Two filters will trap and hold more than one. Two filters also = more flow.
