bio filttering

hi i have just set up a fowlr tank and i was wondering if i could get some advice on what direction i can go with my filtration. my original plan was to use a canaster with live rock. but now i have set up my tank i have a lot off dislodged water. i have got a 240lt tank a 1000lth canaster , protain skimmer and two killo off live. inthe tank there is 28 killo off ochean rock as well. so now im in two minds could i get away with just adding a little live rock and taking some ochean rock or would it be ok as it is. i have also looked into maybee getting anoughter fillter that is good at biological filttering a wet and dry or fluedised bed fillter. im not sure now but i now that every bit off water i dislodge equals one less fish in the tank and i think the tank looks good now enyway. your input would be much apriciated.
