    you can run 2 fans, one pushing, one pulling, but beware that if there is TOO much airflow the carbon wont be able to grasp onto the molecules fast enough and it will render the carbon filter ineffective.

    Carbon filters are rated for so much air flow just like fan. If your filter is rated 200 then both your fans rating shouldn't exceed that or the filter will not be effective.
