2 filters, 1 tank. Please help!

I have a 10 gallon tank with an aqua-tech 10-20 filter but I bought today I bought a 20 gallon long tank and I was wondering if I can use that filter in the new tank but also add an aqua-tech 5-15. Would it be too much to have those 2 filters or it would work out and also would I need an air pump or it won't be necessary anymore. Thanks.

I heard having two filters in a tank could be good if you want to cycle another tank by setting one of them in a newly established tank for a good kick start. Other than that I think it would be good if your filters are spread far apart that way you get more stuff getting picked up by both of them.

You can't really overfilter a tank. I have two filters in my 16 gallon tank rated for a total of 45 won't hurt your fish as long as you baffle them. :)
