Canisters work fine not the optimum but I have one on a 40 gal tank I just replaced the noodles with some marine pure as the surface area is poor on the noodles and marine pure is 3000 times it's surface area and also add some poly filter on top shelf to collect the large waste passing thru.
Good luck you will be fine.

Day number 2 after the move,everything looks good.....
I have a skimmer and a hang on refugium for filtration, and just using the canister this week because the water was really cloudy....I'm going to add some more fishes this week end....
Any suggestion?I was thinking a yellow tang, a mandarin and maybe a couple of small fishes, because it have no lid are fire fish recommended , the water level is 2" below the top...

Don't get a mandarin unless you have a mature tank for at least a year, and they also require numerous amounts of Copepods to feed them which (if I didn't have a culture of them) would cost me about $40 a month.

I grow pods in my refugium
I would wait a couple months to get a Mandy and make sure that you have no other pod eating fish to compete with him.
I really love my green mandarin.

Yes your tank is still too small for any tang. And I would skip the mandarin as well. Even with a fuge you may not be able to maintain enough pods for one in a tank that size.

Ok about the tang, but I told was fine to keep a mandarin in a small 30 g also, I get those number from liveaquaria.... Tang is at least 100g a mandarin they say 30g....
I may can get a small size tang and sell back to the store, is just because I like the yellow, must be something similar for a 70g
