I would suggest a nice canister filter like a Fluval 404 or an Ocean Clear.
If you get the Ocean Clear you have to buy a seperate water pump that can pump 1200gpm. and do the plumbing yourself.
If your not into all that the Fluval will work great.

[center:389f77d9ad] Welcome to AA, pnuts100! [/center:389f77d9ad]
You will need 8-10x gph, so a turn over rate of 1000-1125. Look into canister filters and HOB. Post the ones that you think will be most useful and we can give feedback!
