nice link captain... thats definately what i was thinking, and cheaper than i imagined too.. So i was definately thinking about using a canister, my only question would be the way i had it envisioned, i would have on one end of tank the inlet to the filter, and on the other end, have the output, making a waterfall... would the plumbing effect the canister at all? Since it will be 4' from entrance to exit of the canister and i would have to do some plumbing, which would probably make it about 6' of plumbing to and from the canister...
