im running a 305 on my 72g fw tank and I absolutely love it!! best purchase I ever made. as for seeding it, id just hook it up to your tank and let it run side by side with your current filter. after a few months itll be good to go. you could just transfer the filter media from your current filter over to the 306, but that's up to you. also id look at putting a few live rock rubble pieces in the 306. thatll help with seeding
