What filters better?

I have a 30 gallon FOWLR. And I have penguin 200 filter and a fluval 405 what one would be better or both?

Moved to General hardware and equipment discussion forum.

You can never go wrong by doing both. I dont use a filter or a canister on mine. IMO in that size tank plenty of LR and PH`s to push the water around with frequent PWC`s would do the job.

Do you have any LR? If so the penguin + LR + PH`s to push the water around will work. No LR I would use both to be safe.
