HOT filter

These filter are like a mini canister filter. I had discussed my problems with the lack of space and lack of ability to drill holes in my stand on my thread called PROPER FILTRATION for my 125g discus tank. I wrote marineland and this was a suggestion. I think I have my tank under control but feel I may need for filtration. If you know anything about this or can help I would love it.
At this time I have 3 hob filters
2 emperor 400s rated at 400 gph which probably is 250.
1 small whisper junky filter rated at 100 gph
1 big sponge filter as well

This is the link to the hot filter

Let me know if you think these will help me

It's just a glorified HOB IMO, you'd be better off trading those emperor 400's in on a couple AquaClear 110's which will provide better filtration with no need to buy those filters of theirs.
