External filter with 9Watt UV built in

Has anybody had one I just bought one 1400lph with 9watt UV built in for a build I am doing with a 55 gallon fresh water tank but the pump needs to pump to 1,45meters high as I will have two 10 gallons below it . Is this way over board over kill or will I need more to filter ?. I was thinking of using under gravel filters they worked rally well for me years ago.

I intend to live forever. So far, so good.k:
55 Gallon build from scratch
