Best canister filter

I'm planning a tank upgrade to a 6x2x2 600 litre 180 gal. For either mbuna or using it to expand my tanganyikan community. Any recommendations on the best large canister filters currently available ?

I hear that the fx5 is a boss, but you could do multiple 406 fluvals

I actually meant fx6, but I'm not very well versed with fluval's canister filters.

No I wouldn't wait to get the fx7. Just go ahead and get the fx6 along with a couple of AquaClear 110s andyou'll be fine. You can always upgrade your filtration lator.l

Can't get hold of aquaclear in the UK. Maybe two large canisters but that will be mucho moneyo.
