Well, canisters aren't really good for saltwater IMO. It will have to be cleaned week or nitrates will build up Aton.

I see, why would nitrates build up? Might be a stupid question but I just want justification

Well, many reasons. Detritus easily gets trapped in there, are creates nitrates. Some of the media traps nitrates, and then they will just build up.

A sump would be best. A HOB filter would do too.
