I have a canister on my 20g. Water stays pristine always. I switched out from HOBs because they let out too much co2 from the water and also got clogged up from all the plant matter I've got too quickly. It's up to you really. The HOB also kept the water in check but I never liked it's intrusive appearance. Plus, my spray bar helps keep water fully circulated through the tank.

For SW, I'd just save the money and buy lots more live rock and koralia nanos. For the price of a good canister you could probably net 20lbs of live rock and 2 koralias.

Yes it is a true saltwater tank, I currently have 2 green/blue chromis and a bicolor blenny getting ready to go in. I would prefer to have a filter to add some media in to add in stabilizing the tank... I do have about 30+# of LR but over kill is awesome when it comes to this investment of time energy and money...

The only reason I asked if it was saltwater before I answered the Q is that I tend to jump in an answer a problem only to find out that it was a FW tank posted in the wrong section or what ever.
To funny most of the time.....
If you are just doing it as overkill I would suggest you get a reator from say bulk Reef supply or the like.
