There are a couple of good brands ...I have a fluval 404. It's an older unit that still runs great!

Yeah I've herd talk of fluval and I enhiem (I think) my tank came with an aquaone aquis 1250 series II but I want to over filter and I also plan on getting another 75-90g tank in the future so I intend on using one of the filters on that tank to speed up the cycle

Yep ... Both are quality canister brands. For a 75gal a fluval 406 (current model) wii do the job. Anything larger and your probably going to want to go with an FX-5.
