internal filter opinions

Howdy all, I'm looking to see what everyone thinks of this internal filter. I have an aquatop canister and love it, just don't have any experience with internals.

It seems ok, you wouldn't go for a second canister?

It's part of a new kit at petsmart. Tanks look good, just wasn't sure about these filters that come with it.

Gotcha - well it sounds like there is a media basket x 2. Usually I find they will talk about filter media (which to me implies a basket) or filter cartridges.

The internal I have uses cartridges with a little basket for ceramic media. I just use it for mechanical filtration now so just rinse the cartridges off and pop back in. Can't be bothered buying more cartridges and they cost a bit.
