I agree, I have used a canister filter for sw and had no issues at all. It's all a balance, not overfeeding or overstocking and doing water changes and cleaning out the filter regularly.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

So would you say the filter helps the whole system? I mean it would seem to add 1.5 gallons to the system. But IYO, is it worth cutting the holes in the top to add the filter?

That is something u need to decide. Personally I couldn't bring myself to hack up a new purchase. Use the filtration that's provided and if ur not satisfied, then hack it up. Lol
