That depends on how big your tank is. Your canister works by utilizing pressure. The pump merely just continues the process in which gravity has done most of the work. By splitting the output your actually decreasing pressure and making the pump work harder. This wouldn't be an issue for a larger filter on a smaller tank but I'd say anything over 4 ft. your asking for trouble and that might be generous. What's your reasoning for doing this?
