You can run one on one of the canisters or get a splitter and have the co2
exit through both filters. As long as it is mixing well and distributed all over the tank you should have no problems.
I haven't cleaned the diffuser yet so i can't say. It's been running for a good while and I haven't seen a slow in co2
delivery. I'll let you know when I clean it.
