Best Wet/Dry system for goldfish?

I am looking at purchasing this 90g pre-drilled aquarium and want to get a wet dry system. I currently have a 56g setup with orandas, redcaps and moors with just a basic filter.

What type of wet/dry system is the best out there in terms of money? I am looking at the eshopps WD125CS or the Aqueon Proflex. However, it is hard to find a lot of reviews of either of them. So I decided to come here and see what you all thought.

Also, I know a lot of people are probably going to say to build one, but I would rather just buy.

i think most wet dry filters work around the same, don't think there are too many differences between the different makes

i am currently setting up a 85g drilled acrylic tank, and i bought a aqualine wet dry off the well known auction site. i went with one that they rated for 175 gallons, basically the largest i can fit inside my premade acrylic stand.
i am using mine for goldfish as well. still in the progress, lots of work to get it set up, but i'm sure it will be worth it when its done.

I don't know if you have already made a decision yet, but I've thoroughly researched both proflex and eshopps wd. Most of what I learned are from the videos on youtube. You could watch and determine what is best for you.

I like the eshopps more than the proflex because I know I want a wet/dry system, the material for eshopps seem more tougher, and the whole system is almost complete (just need pump). Proflex lets you customize and do different things with it, but I need to buy more equipment to complete the system and the product seems a little flimsy.

I hope this helps.
Kind Regards,
