36 gallon bow front filtration

I am getting the bow front tank next year, and I was curious what you guys suggest for filtration. I am getting a Fluval 205 tomorrow. I have an Aquaclear 30 that is on my ten gallon tank. I also have a tetra pf-10 that is not in use. What combo would be best for the bow front tank?

Fluval and AquaClear IMO will provide best filtration.

The aquaclear is definitely the most maintenance free filter that I have.

I might keep the 205 on my ten gallon and get an Aquatop cf-500 UV for 100$. I filters 525 gallons per hour and has a UV sterilizer
