    I have often, and at present I am using two filters in my tanks... it doesn't cause a problem and you could argue that its safer than using one big filter cuz if one packs in the other will still be working

    Your two filters are the same as I have on my tank - a wet/dry (trickle) filter and a protein skimmer. Many octopus owners have this combination.
