You can also use a hangon back filter. Much easier than setting up a sump and all that.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I using mpostly aquaclear filters. I have a 50 on my 20g sw and had a 50 on my 29g regular tank.

It allows you to change your media around to what you need which is very convenient, it picks up the particulate matter quite well and they are cheap.

Amazon.com: AquaClear 50 Power Filter - 110 V, UL Listed (Includes AquaClear 50 Carbon, AquaClear 50 Foam & AquaClear 50 BioMax: Pet Supplies

An aquaclear 70 might be a bit too much but they are here

Amazon.com: AquaClear 70 Power Filter - 110 V, UL Listed (Includes AquaClear 70 Carbon, AquaClear 70 Foam & AquaClear 70 BioMax: Pet Supplies

They are $10 more but filter alot more water.

Hope that helped!
