Is it ok to use 2 power/overhang filters for a tank? I have a 46-gal with an AquaClear filter (can't remember the model offhand, but it is for a 50-gal), and a friend gave me a brand new Penguin BioWheel filter for a 50-gal. I'm wondering... could I use these both on a 46-gal, or is this too much?

Thanks all for putting up with my ignorance and noob questions. You guys are such a great resource! If only the LFS was half this good!

That is fine, you cant have too much filtration!

Agree with BN.:)
Nothing wrong with that so you should be fine.

Can't trust lfs these days unless they knew what they were talking about.

Yeah that should be just fine man!

Those are two great filters, probably some of the best HOB's on the market.

Yes I have a 46 Gallon bowfront with two penguin 50 G filters and it keeps my tank crystal clear.
