    Have you thought about building your own wet/dry filter using a 10-15 gal with an over flow box and return pump might be a better solution

    It sounds... like a big and complicated solution, I don't really know how to make anything like this OR get the parts for it in the first place... But please, tell me more still? :)

    all you would need is a 15 gallon long with a pump return of 700 to 800 gallon , 2 hose 3/4 in about 5 ft long ,over flow box.
    1/2 dz pvc elbows , 3 ft pvc , 2 tank dividers , bio balls and filter media

    I see! Alright... actually, I bought an external filter already, and I'm for now combining it with the Fluval 4. As far as I know, it should be perfectly enough :) As my tank is a 317L one, and the filters combined pump around 3000L/h.
