I am currently using an external filter rated for a tank of 240 litres in my 240 litre tank that is shortly to be upgrade for one that is up to the task.I was wondering if it would be a good idea to use this as a bio media only filter along side the replacement filter and use the replacement mainly for polishing and treating the aquarium ie adding peat charcoal etc.

The 550 is only rated for a 100L tank.

I would use both in standard mode.

charcoal & peat are not used together and it is easy to drop a bag in either canister as required.
