Upgrading soon hopefully

Hi. I am wanting to upgrade from a 20 tall to a 56 column. What do yall think about the 56 column? I was planning on using a fluval c4 filter. Would that work well?

I think it would be ok... but I am not sure the filter would be able to make enough flow to get dirt from the bottom...

When you buy your filter, it should come with an extender and you can slip in when you set up your tank to so it starts pulling water from lower in the tank.
