Depends on what kind and how many fish your gonna keep. IMO, your going to want a wet/dry filter sized for a 300g tank.

types of fish

i would like to have some catfish, real catfish(small flathead, channel or blue) or a bass or crappie. i'd like to have native fish. i dont know how many fish im going to put in, mainly because i dont know how many i can put in safely. i hope this helps and i hope you can also.

With cats, I would definitely go with a wet/dry filter.

I agree with everyone else...A wet/dry filter...one with a large sump. That way you can throw your heater in there and a couple of powerheads. This way, the water would be warm and well oxygenated when it returns back to the tank.
