Which filter?

Ok I've got a 75 gal sw reef. My fluval 304 took a dump on me (well is getting ready to). I have the chance to buy a fluval 404 brand new in the box for $86.00 plus shipping. Whould that be an idea filter to get or should I go with something else?

Also would a 10 gal make a good refuguim for that 75?

Fluval 404 is an excellent filter! I was going to use Wet/Dry filtration setup, but i didn't want to take a chance of water overflowing onto my new hardwood floor when there is power outage. So, i went with Fluval 404 and it works fine for my reef system as well. Just make sure you remove the Ceremic Bio rings because they will eventualy turn into a nitrate factory. As for a refugium, a 10 gal should be fine.JMO
