i would personally ditch the canister idea.there might be too much of flow through the canister.if possible (should there be no sump) create a DSB in your actual display,anything more than 7cm deep would allow pods to populate.

as for the filter floss,please make sure that it is washed out every day or second day as it can/may cause nitrate spikes.
why not add on a hangon Redsea prizm skimmer,works like a bomb!
please post a pic of this tank.

Just out of curiosity, don't those 4 2000lph pumps cause havoc in such a small tank?
