I have a question re: filtration

Can you have too much? I was running an Aquaclear 200 on my 30 gallon with a double sponge insert, one sponge for the 200 and 2 side by side from a Mini. I added an Aquaclear Mini to the tank, I took the two mini sponges from the 200 to use as medium in the new mini and added a fresh sponge to the 200 with the other one so I would not upset the bio balance (which I upset on the weekend by doing too thorough a tank clean). Is this overkill? I am overstocked and the 200 was dealing adequately with it, but I may need to add a few fish and my others are growing. I wont have the big tank going for a few more months yet (costs so much!!!!)and I just want to be sure that I am not overfiltering and doing more harm than good.Wadda ya'll think?
