Marineland Multistage Canister Filters C-360 vs. Marineland Emperor 400

i just bought a 56 gallon column tank last night. And I'm not sure which filter I want. Does anyone have any suggestions?

the column tank is 30"L x 18"D x 24"H

AquaClear 110, Fluval 405, or even Fluval FX5 depending on your stocking. Don't waste your money on a Marineland C-series.

I would get a Fluval 405 for many reasons including it's silent, extremely effect, easy maintenance, loads of media options, and attachments like spray bars.

Well I cant be spending $300 on a canister filter. I'm looking to spend $150 for Canister and less than that for a power filter.

I think I may go with the Aqua Clear 110 on this site. since it does come with a rebate with 1yr free of media.

With the right media setup you won't be replacing anything except the filter floss.

You can get a Fluval 405 in that price range, that would be the best option.
