Question Filter for 47G tall reef

Yes im definetly considering turning my old 47G tall tank into a saltwater reef. I know alot of you are probly saying "avoid the tall tanks!, stick with a bigger footprint!", but the thing is i just spent alot of money on a 125G freshwater tank for my African cichlids that were in the 47G tall. It would save me alot of money if i just converted the 47G into a reef instead buying a whole new setup, considering that i already have the tank, the stand and the light. Just picture it being a nano reef with a taller column.

So now thats out of the way, what kind of filter would you recommend for this type of tank. Also other equipment suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
