Hi Everyone, Im currently cycling my 60 gallon tank (48x15x18), its still in its infancy, havents had nitrites show up yet. I plan onhavbing a community tank with some corys, tetras, a pleco, and a few dwarf cichlids. Im running a Fluval 306 on it right now. I always had in mind to run 2 filters, since I want to make sure theres more than enough filtration and especially if a filter goes down, my tank wouldnt. I have the intake & outputs both on one side right now. The outflow has some pretty good water flow behind it. That being said, I was wondering a couple things about 2 filters if anyone can help me out please. Im not the most handy person in the world either.... 1 - Would getting another filter right now hinder the cycling process? Should I wait until 1 is cycled first? 2 - Assuming I get another Fluval 306, what is the best way to position the input/outflows? Im worried if I have 1 of each on either side of the tank, it will create a whirpool or something along those lines... 3 - Should both outflows be near the top of the tank? With the type of fish I want to keep, I dont want them all having to fight strong currents if I put one halfway down. I jsut want to try and avoid dead spots. 4 - Outside of putting a spray bar on the outflow, are there any other ways to adjust the flow of the filter? I appreciate any responses and insight with this. Feel free to offer any suggestions that may help me if you notice anything based on the info I posted. Thanks!!
