The juwel filter system works very well...The only time I would change anything is when keeping lrg messy fish, I would then add an external that is capable of a tank twice the size...As to the 104 if you have it already then use it along with the juwel.(you can never have too much filtration)

Juwel filters are designed to be suitable and adequate for the tanks they come with, and by the stocklist that filter will cope fine. With a turnover of 500ltr p'hr the 104 will not be adequate for your 300ltrs. I would always go with 3 times the litreage of tank for a filter. So conclude Use it if you want BTBH is it really worth it? :D
