I like flow in my tank. Ok a lot, lol. If you have got the mp 10w es model then i would get another one, that way they could talk back and such. One on the other off, etc, etc... If you have the normal mp10 es model then, there would be not point of having/running two. This would be over kill, by sooo much. They would not talk back and forth, leaving a wave of water on your floor. LOL. I would still look into getting a good HOB Skimmer before getting another vortech pump. I love them but hate the $$$. Lol

A HOB Skimmer, is a hang on back skimmer. This takes all the bad stuff out of the tank, etc.
