Keep in mind that some of the smaller filters may not have the necessary pump power to push the water all the way back to the top of a 90 gal. Be sure to check the max height before you purchase. The 106 has a max height of 4.75 feet and you still have to install the other equipment too. Check page 7 "Pumping Power" to see max heights of the 06 series. http://ca-en.hagen.com/File/b3378f42...0-44fdc858d921

That good info, with looking at that and what I plan to add, no way small canister going to work. My stand alone is 35 inches tall. I think I would have to get a 405, if I wanted it to look the same for both filter, I would have to go with 2 spray bars. One for each filter.

Do you think that would work?
