My theory is this... You can never have enough filtration and the AC
110's I LOVE, you have so many options for media and of using 2 you can have one with one type of media and the other with some other type. Also if one goes down you'll have a back up. I run a 110 on my 75g even though I have a canister filter (fluval fx5) I use the 110 for different media of it calls for it. Right now I use it for the sponge and filter floss or poly floss, polishing pads. Something to pick up the very very fine particles that the fx5 may leave behind. Also I have the fx5's intake lower in my tank so the 110 intake is higher so I feel I'm getting a good filtration system and to help with flow and kicking up debris I use a Koralia power head rated at 1,000 gph
just to keep the water moving.
Hope that helps you.
I could have just answered in short and said yes go with another
Thought a little background would help more
Good luck with either way you go.
