If you ae going with a HOB powerfilter, then the AquaClear is your best choice, if you instead decide on a canister, then a Rena Filstar or an Eheim are your best choices.

AquaClears are good HOB's...the only ones I use, period.

But for a tank that size, I'd push you towards a canister, specifically a Rena Filstar XP1...or if you plan on having messy fish, an XP2. In fact, just go with the XP2 either way, as it has more room for filter media.
