Ive used HOB filters to do the same. It's far better to remove the fine particulate sediments then to let them settle, only to get stirred up again later.

yea, i did it and my tank waters already looking clear, but another question, im getting some cured live rock tom. from an ex-employee of a LFS thats been in a tank for like 5 years.. should i keep the fluval on until i make my sump? if i keep it on, should i take the media out of the canister? ( filter pads, stones, carbon and gravel )
