A view of the canister, I intend to get some lava rock and have less filter floss

The PVC spraybar.

The tank right as I got it running. Note, its rather powerful. The end has a sponge for it, I am just waiting for the silicone to dry before its attached!

Forget the lava rock as it is not porous at all. You want your water to go through your media, never around it. Just fill that filters with simple plastic pot scrubbies for 10 times the surface area. Clean about once every 4+ months or so.
