Which Filter?

Hi everyone,
I am going to get a 36 gallon bow front tank and was curious what filter you guys think I should get. I am considering all the options and just can't decide. Lol
I also need to get a better filter for my five gallon tank. What should I get?
Thank You

What about the 110? What is the flow rate of the 70?

I think whichever you want. 110 or 70 would both be good options!

The AC 70 has a flow rate of 300 gph and the 110 500 gph, according to this chart on the website:

I use the 110 on my 29 gal and it's wonderful! If you have the cash, I would spring for it. If not, the 70 should still get the job done.

The AC 70 is pretty much always under $40 on amazon, with free shipping. Right now it's actually under $35.
