bro, no need liao. I just got a cheapo one WeiPro SA2011. seems like the pump 1200 is not strong enough to create bubble to the cup. My tank water level is 4" lower than the skimmer water level indicator.

Canister filtration is not a popular choice of filtration for marine, mainly the difficulty in keeping it clean as its troublesome to regularly open and clear the inside. Detritous can accumulate within it and result in it producing excessive nitrates.

Rest assured, it can definitely work but a sump tank is by far the most popular choice of filtration for marine aquariums.
