Default Ehiem Pro Cansiter used as a reactor possible?

Question do you think its a good idea to run a canister with GFO, Carbon, and Phosphate remover? I have a ehiem pro canister laying around it and has three trays wondering if anyone else did this?

All those in the regular reactors tumble to be more efficient. Each has their own specific gravity, so they require different g/hr hence different reactors.
I am not sure that this plan would work efficiently, as the canister water flows down and not up. Maybe I am wrong,I don't have experience with canisters so do not know the direction of flow.
However, if the flow is too great, the particles will grind each other into small pieces.

Default Yep

It will work fine, just put all the medias in bags and then in the trays. Put filter floss in the top tray at the top, and keep the filter ultra clean and it will work mint. The key is keeping the canister filter clean.

Default Floss

Another thing, filter floss should be changed regularly
