Hi, with a tank that large my thoughts would be a good canister filter. They move a lot of water and the options you have for media are outstanding. I went from a large hang on power filter to a canister filter just a while ago and I wish I had done it sooner. Just research a lot before you buy! The canister filters really keep the water clean!

Canister Filters

The one I went with is an API Filstar. It works great and is easy to clean. It has the quick disconnects so there is no mess or repriming. Fluval, Marineland and Eheim are also reliable according to reviews. They all work basically the same. If it is in your budget I would get one thats a step up from what you actually need . Its hard to over filter a good setup and it provides for room to grow and heavier fish loads. Best of luck with which ever you choose.
