I am starting a 50 gallon mbuna tank here soon. I got the tank for free and it came with a penguin 200 power filter and a rena xp2 canister filter. Should I use both filters in conjunction or is that overkill?

Definitely not overkill. With mbuna, you want to over-filter as they're fairly messy and usually overstocked in the tank to help spread aggression. I'm running a similar setup with an XP2 and an AC70.

Congrats on the great score. :thumb:
Agreed not overkill, I would definitely use both filters. On my 75G I run an AC110 and a Fluval 305.
