Do you run multiple filters on your tanks?

In order to improve the amount of beneficial bacteria that your tank can hold in the filters, the next step is to increase the amount of areas (this filters) to the tank to hold more of your filter has reached the peak. Even in smaller tanks, it can be extremely wise to run multiple filters to avoid an issue where one filter burns out (and kills off all of your beneficial bacteria).

Do you run just one filter on your tanks or do you always run more than one (even if not needed) to have more conservative approach to filtration and allow for a worst case event to happen?

I tend to since I feel like using one filter can be a single point of failure, and if anything were to go wrong, having multiple would keep my cycle going fine.

Plus, who doesn’t love the flow from additional filters running?
