42hex filtration?

I'm up in the air on what type of filtration system to go with. I'm in the process of setting up this tank and as most know there isn't a lot of room in the stand for a sump. Any suggestions? I plan on putting a few lps and a few fish. Haven't completely made my mind up on what yet.

Thanks Mudzie... It might be my only option. I went to my lfs and he wasn't real sure of anything more than HOBs as well. I think I'm just gonna drill it and set up a lil sumn for trial. Really don't want to have anything hanging. I just finished my DIY canopy for it and don't want to go hacking it up. Lol
