I think you should reconsider getting a canister and instead run a refugium. The canister will kill all pods and anything really that goes through it. Your water will be clean and everything as in particles floating around but stuff that your corals and inverts love may not be around in your tank if u run canister.

Np and as in 70 u mean that hang on filter? If so ya thats great, put a little rubble rock in it and little pods may live in it. It may sound like I am obsessing and stuff but if u had high pod population growth of tank will be much better.

I don't see how the impeller of a canister would be any worse than the impeller of an AC70.

I thought it was just a hang on with a pad that catches stuff sorry if I miss judged that hang on, anything that has an extreme filtration like a canister will deplete the live stuff in water
