It will not be a betta tank. more thank likely some sort of tetras and corys and maybe RCS

There never can be too much filtration, IMO. But depending on the fish will chain the amount of water flow there should be. However, since your not doing a betta tank, then most likely you'll be ok

Make current blockers! I have 3 filters on my ten gal, and I duct taped a piece of plastic over the filter water output. My betta has no problems In this tank
