I would put another AC 70 on it just for more surface movement. Use the sponge and fill it up with floss. It can act like a water polisher.

Good morning,

The more filtration the better as long as the fish are not being blown around the aquarium by the current.

I would look into a canister filter personally, a sunsun canister would be cheaper than another AC70 and would provide much better filtration than two HOBs.

Either way, more filtration is better.

You always want 2 filters on a larger tank. It's all about redundancy when keeping in a larger aquarium. If 1 is good than 2 is better.
