The fluval 304 should be enough

Filtration and lighting are two things I've learned NOT to skimp on. IMO as long as the HOB's are doing their job properly (ie. not broken), Then wait and save your money until you can buy a canister that is worth investing in. Otherwise you're just throwing your money away on sub-par equipment... :\

So I'll second Andrew on the Fluval models. Excellent canisters that won't disappoint.

I went with Rena canisters

My 135 gal L is not set up yet (still finishing the stand and purchasing items for it, but after a lot of research I picked up two Rena canisters, an XP3 and an XP4. Ordered from Amazon before the 15th so no tax, and since my company is a prime member, free shipping too. I will post more when I get them set up in the tank. (Hat tip to Andrew McFadden for his help.)

Rena X-P's are great filters. You will really like the ease of maintenance I am currently using 7 of them, some as old as 12 yrs. Never a problem!!
