I would use the canister to run carbon or GFO media.

Granular Ferric Oxide (GFO) ; Phosphate remover

A canister can certainly be used to put LR rubble in. Save a chamber or 2 for specialized media when you need it.. Many run their systems this way, or in conjunction with other filtering sources.


BTW: I prefer Fluval canisters...

I currently have an xp2 and an xp3 on my 125g fw, I've ran the xp1 but never the xp4 (wasn't out yet when I was buying filters)

The Rena Filstar XP models are winners in every aspect. low Maintenance, no leaks, and they are easily maintained with a no-leak quick disconnect from the hoses.

I'd recommend them to any enthusiest.
