I will be ordering a Rena xp3 for my tank and was wondering what canisters i should get...
as some of yu guys know I have a 44g tank thats totaly out of whack (HIGH EVERYTHING) but thats another story, (due to poor filterarion). i will be going alot of water changes for now...to stable out the numbers..

what canisters from the dozen or so AP makes should i get??,, was thinking
(1) FilStar Bio-Chem Zorb
(1) FilStar Zeolite Ammonia Remover
(1) FilStar Micro-Filtration Pad
(1) FilStar Bio-Chem Stars
(1) FilStar Ceramic Rings
(1) FilStar Water Softener Pillow
(1) FilStar Phos-Zorb
(1) FilStar Nitra-Zorb

I basically chose one of each cause the company suggested (1) canister for every 55g aq.
should i order more of X and and none Y ,,,,i still didnt put my order in, so i am very frexible.

THANKS IN ADVACE TO ALL YU GUYS,,,,I REALLY APPRECIATE ALL YOU HELP

Yep, you can mix and match. Each compartement comes with a divider. You may want to make room for some micro-filtration pads though, helps keep your water crystal clear. Really also, you shouldnt be using the Ammonia Remover and Nitrazorb to do your work, just get on a good water change schedule. Also, the Nitra-Zorb most likely removes Nitrates not Nitrites.
