From personal experience... fill the durned canister up before buttoning up the lid. That way you only have the hoses to fill. Now...as to hoses... I haven't owned a Filstar, though they seem to be easy to find locally (wonder why?) so I have no idea about how the intakes and outlets are but... the only way I could get my fluval primed was to dunk the entire hose in the tank and even then, I usually ended up with an airbubble at the elbow. I've never had any problems getting the hoses primed with the 2026.
