External Power Filters

I find my self considering (even after potential nitrate problems) getting some sort of external Power Filter. currantly I run a Millenium 3000 HOB Filter, which I find to not be very flexable when it comes to choosing what media I wish to run in it. Secondly, I am going to Build a canopy for my Tank and the canopy and the big bulky filter hanging off the back just doesn't fit into my design.

My tank is a 50 Gallon 36x18x18 inches
140 LBS LS
117 LBS LR
inverts currantly with expectations of keeping mostly softys and a few fish (small)

I have a aqua-c Remora 18" tall
No Sump

I think I have enough LR and LS to handle the Nitrates (0 last i tested) and I wish to also employ some chemical filtration such as Chem-pure, and Phos-Zorb. and I am thinking of one of the following or ones like them that i have not listed.

Cascade Canaster by Penn-Plax

Eheim Wet/Dry Systems

Fluval Multistage Filters

Filstar Canister Filters

Any and all suggestions would be welcome.

I'd go Fluval 404 canister. I think they're great. The Eheim's aren't bad either. IMO.
