Does it make sense to use 2 2026 filters on a 75gal. Is one enough, is it better to use one 2028?

Instead of 2 2026s, just get one 2028. I don't know how you would set one up to just be biofiltration because without the mechanical filtration first your biomedia will get all gunked up. The 2028 has 3 media baskets so plenty of room for whatever you want to put in there and the circulation should be fine in a 75 gallon, even with the reactor. I have one on a 50 breeder with that same reactor and a UV filter and the flow is still very strong, thinking of getting an inline heater also to tone it down a little.
