Is there such a thing as too many breakers?

Question about the breakers, can I parallel breakers? Example, using two 50 amp breakers in parallel to get 100 amp breaking capacity. I have been looking at potential power draw, and if I do the math 3000W @ 24V Nominal would require a 125 amp power draw, And if I wanted to do 6000w it would be 250 amp power draw. The highest I have found for a DC breaker ( that is not an ABB or Schnider MCCB's ) is 63 amps.

I agree this would look rad, the ones that I am finding on amazon look to cheap and flimsy to look cool though. I will have to look around some more

I wouldn't try to 'parallel breakers'.

I use "MidNite Solar - 250 Amp 125Vdc DC Panel Mount Breaker MNEDC 250 A" breakers from my 48v battery bank --> 12,000w AIMS inverters -  https://www.ebay.com/itm/MidNite-Solar-2...Swj1haV~r6
