When it comes to tanks larger than 20gal, I prefer to run multiple filters. Either HOBs or canisters. Allows flexibility if one fails and needs repair or if I have to do a major clean.
Not a bad idea there. It's also much easier to run inline equipment off two filters as when you keep adding, you end up with a super long outflow path from the filter.
