I have a 60 gallon 4' tank with 2 aqueon 75 HOB filters. I plan to have an overstocked tank of African Cichlids so I wanted the extra filtration. It was suggested to me that I should just fill one HOB with mechanical/ sponge materiel on one side of the tank and fill the other HOB with media like ceramic rings at the other end of the tank. He also said I should just forget carbon unless I was removing medicine. Does this sound like a good method of filtration if I need a large bioload with HOBs?

Agree with the no carbon.
I would match the filter contents identically. That way if one quits or you clean one but not the other, you always have a complete functional filter going.
I have two filters on most tanks and clean one on the 15th and the other about the 30th.

I'd agree with punman. Especially if you are using two of the same filters.
