Hi Krib
I have 2 hob filters and I totally get what your saying about the surface agitation. Ive also considered the canister filters but each time I did I remembered back in the day when I had one and what a pita they are to prime and clean out. Before buying one I would check and see what your co2 is like with the hob filters. I just bought a drop checker this past week and if the hob make a big difference in the co2 I would then consider a canister filter. If it doesnt make a big difference it wouldnt be worth all the hassle for me. Plus with a hob filter it helps with surface scum.
Please keep us updated because Im right where you are.
