There is a possibility of too much flow, but more filtration, in terms of the efficiency of the filter removing particles, will never be a problem.

I second this.

Imo more is always better in this hobby...(with in reason). I always have double filtration.

I'm slightly confused as to why you'd need a filter for a shrimp or a snail...I think the substrate should hold enough biomedia for just either of them...
