Hi all . I'm a newby on here

Ok so far in my house I have a 450 ltr coner tank with a Malawi set up. Altho i have some fire mouths and nicuagua, s in there, also. Which seems to be working fine working fine with out any issues. Running a fx5 filter two heaters and a sealed lighting unit I believe is aqua one. I also have a 3ft set up with two young frontosa. A 30 ltr set up with juvenile frontosa, to be added to the young in a month or so.

Any way my question is this.
I have just been given a 6ft x 1.5ft x 3 ft 700 - 750 ltrs tank which is for a frontosa colony .I have to make or buy a stand , source a hood & lighting ect but I'm not sure what filtration to get?
Is it better to fork out on another fx5? Or by 2 maybe 3 smaller canister filter which go cheap on eBay ect? Any suggestions.

Also if any one has any old filters they no longer want , and would like to sell or donate. Let me know I
In the uk in Norfolk.
