Canisters will filter out particulates and also prvide additional biological filtration. More never hurts.

+1.

But, be careful with your Bioballs. What system do you plan on running? If you will have reef, Bioballs will hurt you. It will become a 'trate factory which will kill most corals. If you are doing FOWLR, then it is ok.
