Help if I should return or keep

I bought a rena 2 canister filter new for $75 and was wondering should I return it if im going to build a sump or should i use it instead of buying a pump for around the same price? Its a 25 gallon setup

Thanks

I would run what you have on that size tank if youre not interested or don't want to setup a sump.

I;m still running a canister filter on my 55g with no ill effects. You just have to make sure the canister filter stays clean is all.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks Carey but I received your help after I bought a used eshopps 75 sump and a overflow for $75. Couldn't pass it up. At the store I bought it at the owner told me I could not use my canister filter in place of a pump. Is this true?
