Joined the leaque of over filtration :D (question)

Or so I think... hehe

Right now for my 20 gal set up:
1 undergravel filter with two 6" x 12" plates
2 Aquaclear #201 Powerheads attached to the UGF
(air tube attached but valve closed, flow set to 3/6)
1 Aquaclear 150 Power Filter

Everything looks alright?

Just a small question about the Power filter about the length of the intake tube. If I attach only 1 tube it will be at the middle of the tank height; if I attach 2 tubes it will be at about 2 inches from the gravel. Should I use 1 or 2 (with UGF that is)? (1 seemed a little bit high and 2 seemed a little too low to me... hehe)

Hope that made sense :)
