Is the idea of having two heaters to have them back each other up? So neither one needs to work as hard.

That was my reasoning but I do have more than adequate flow I run two fluval 405's and I run the second heater so its less of a draw on one heater and if one heater breaks while I am away for the weekend I have a back up already in the tank ready to rock
