Both. That will maintain your siphon and let you restart without any priming

so you can just turn the input and output valves both closed, disconnect the canister and clean it out, no harm, no foul?

Basically. If you keep water in both lines and your canister is full then it will be under normal operation when you turn it back on. Your issue comes if input is closed and the canister pushes all it's water out killing the siphon. Full hoses should fix that issues you will have minimal air to deal with

For me, I close the output first and then the intake, making sure I take it out of the water and turn it upside down first. Then, clean it and turn it on. Open the intake(still upside down with water in the tube) and the output. Tada!

Look at some fluvals and API Filstars

They are very inexpensive for what you get

Would not recommend fluvals...I have tried 2 on my breeding tanks and both got FRS.

May I recommend a SunSun canister filter? I have one on my 27 gallon cube and have had zero problems. It is a lot less expensive than the competition, has a TON of media storage, and pumps a lot of water. And did I mention, it is 110% silent? I can't hear it unless I put my ear within an inch of the canister. I do that every once in a while because I can't tell whether or not it's on, lol.

I've had it for around 9 months now. I have the HW-304A, the model without the UV. If you get a model with a B at the end, it has UV. I'd recommend not to use it often, because the plastic on the inside is not UV resistant, even on the UV models. But every once in a while is OK.

As far as I know, you can only buy them on ebay.com

If you have any questions, let me know.

I would just get a AC70 or the Fluval C4, I like the Fluval better, idk I just like the easy filter changes of HOB's for small tanks.

For a canister if it isn't a Fluval or Eheim look at the Cobalt aquatics EXT filter, all you do to disconnect it is turn the top and it pops off and the water keeps flowing because the pump is inline and not in the canister.
