1 or 2 filters

As you know, I have a 10g with only one fish ATM. Two more fish will be in it by next week. I have 2 Aquatech 5-15 filters, and I was wondering if I should use both or just one. I've been using both ever since I set the tank up (bout a month or 2 ago.) How many should I use with 3 fish?

I would use just one filter. If you think one isn't strong enough then maybe get a stronger filter.

Nah I think it's strong enough, it's made for 5-15 gallons. I was just making sure that extra filtration wasn't needed. I guess I'll just have an extra filter if I ever get another tank (puahaha like I need another one...) Just wanted to get someone elses advice!

1 is all you need for that many fish unless were talking about Goldfish or another heavy waste producer., Also with two it will just cause more water flow and some fish doesn't like the extra turbulence it creates and may cause unnecessary stress

Yeah that's what I thought about having 2 filters is the current was extra strong even with my baffles. So I took one out. Thanks for the advice though!
