Do I need this filter if I already have an Aqueon power filter?

http://www.petco.com/Shop/Product.aspx?sku=1083759 This is the filter I'm thinking about getting - which one do I need to get? Or should I get both?

answer 2
I personally Have two filters on my 20 gallon tank. I have the Fluval u3 and the Aqueon Quiet flow for up to 50 gallons. Keeps my tank clear and keeps water changes at a min. I only do water changes once every 2 weeks.
I'd say go with 2 filters just make sure they are not to close together.

answer 1
the numbers are the level of your fluval. for example I order mines fluval U2
so i order U2 Foam Pad or U2 Poly carbon Cartridge. Since you are a Fluval U3 you should order a U3 Foam Pad or U3 Carbon Cartridge depending what u need wich are basically those and
U3 POLY/CLEARMAX FILTER CARTRIDGE

The U stands for the series of filter and the # number for the model..
