For those of you using a canister filter, I'm curious to what media you're using for filtration. I currently have a HOB with Matrix on one side and a bag of Purigen and some cut to fit filter pads for a Aqueon 55/70 in the other half. I'm planning on changing to a 265GPH canister filter and want to accompany that with a Seachem Tidal 75. Does anyone think this might be overkill on filtration? I like how the Tidal 75 has a skimmer and want to make sure I have enough circulation and surface agitation for my moderately planted fish aquarium. The 265GPH may have enough for all my 55 gallon requirements but I'm not sure because I have never used a canister filter. How do you place your media is another question. I have my own thoughts but like to hear yours.
