I have a 55g mbuna setup with 2 eheim 2215's

I'm considering building a RFUGF
I have a spare maxijet 1200 or I can use output of one of my eheims

I'm basically looking for a way to minimize the need for vacuuming gravel, so I'm a bit on the fence here..

I can either:
1)use pvc piping with jets powered by either maxijet 1200 or output of eheim 2215
2) get a regular underground filter and reverse the flow
3) combine 1 & 2 , ie use pvc piping hooked up to the powerhead and on top of that put the underground filter hooked up to either or both outputs of my carnister filters...

questions:
1) how many jets could a maxijet 1200 power (Powerhead Mode: 295GPH,Circulation Mode: 1300GPH)
2) if I go 1 or 2, should I use the carnister output or the powerhead?

any other suggestions?
