You certainly can. However instead of using the second wp40 have you thought about investing in multiple smaller powerheads to specifically take care of dead spots?

The magnets in the smaller ones are not strong enough. I have a hydror 850 and it won't stay on the glass. That's the main reason I'm upgrading power heads. My sun sun 1600 cord is to short so it's gotta go also

I am looking into a wp25 for the second ph in my 90 reef. I have a couple of questions for those of you who have some experience with these.
1) will it stay on my 3/8" thick glass?
2) are they built well?
3) would you recommend it over a hodor koralia evo? I believe the price difference is $15-25, is it worth it?

1 - I'm sure it will be just fine on your thick glass. It's a very strong magnet.
2 & 3 - If you are looking for a wave maker then the price of the hydor wavemaker unit is about the same price as the WP - 25 so it's a very cost efficient alternative. However if you are just looking for a standard powerhead then the Hydor koralia is without a doubt the way to go.

I put two wp40s in my 210 thinking I'd need both to make a good wave and found that one 40 will almost send waves over the rim on the high setting so I used the other on else mode to just cycle through random patterns and flow rates to keep the water under the surface at a random flow pattern.
