    The XP L does more gph than the 302, but if the 302 is half the price of the XP L, I would go for the 302. Bacteria will depend on your medias and stock.

    The API is $70 and the Sunsun is $35

    If price is what you are after then get the 302, if gph then get the XP L.

    Could I use media for other filters for these guys? Like sponges, biomax, bio balls, carbon, etc?

    Unless they have a Sunsun for the same price as the XP L, that does more gph than the XP L. That's if current isn't an issue.

    So far current is not an issue for this tank. It seems like these are the only two they have

    Got the Sunsun. It had better reviews as a brand and I am mainly getting it for more bacteria and as a back up filter
