excellant write up. Good summary of the pros and cons of the various types. but do ceramic rings provide for chemical filteration? If so how does this happen?

yes, that was what I was aware of too... But in the post it is mentioned that it provides chemical filteration too. So just buzzed.

I have always preferred canisters over wet dry. What benefits am i missing out on by sticking with a canister?

I'm using a red sea nano HOB in my small 2.5 g tank. From what I can tell from reading this I can load the empty space behind the provided filter sponges with biomedia and the like?

Does size matter?
Bear with me .... really new at this but in reading some of the posts it would appear, if I am reading correct, that the fin 20 that came with my kit might not be big enough for good filtering - or am I wrong? Should I replace with a HOB that is bigger?
Presently I am using Whisper bio-Bags - and change every 3-4 weeks as listed on the package - or am I too hooked into the marketing?
