I worry it'll overflow. I've changed the pad (testing the water for days after to make sure no problems occur) & within 2 weeks its doing the same thing. So I wash my hands of it & ordered my Fluval 306 today!! I hope it's as easy as people say to set up!
Canister filters are great! My 05 series moderately easy to set up.
Keep in mind that canisters will clog too and should be cleaned regularly as well
