Multiple plug-ins

Hi,
I have a ten gallon and a 29 gallon(still cycling) I need more outlets and I want to buy one if those that have several plugins. My question is that if I already have one can I have another one in a different outlet . They are both on the same breaker.

What matters is what the circuit is rated for and how much you have plugged in. Most small aquarium stuff is not drawing a lot of amperage. You do not want to daisy chain 2 of them together however. They should both be plugged into the outlet.

In addition... they should both be plugged in to a GFCI or be a powerstrip which includes a GFCI. Aquarium equipment should never be plugged in to a standard outlet or regular old surge protector.

Oh, I knew there was something like that but I couldn't find it! Lol. So many sections! But thank you. My mom was worried about me burning the house down!
