A single XP3 would be way too small for a 125gal. Canister flow rates are at the pump which is usually a couple feet below the aquarium.

I had an XP3 on a 55gal tank and it was WAY underpowered.

Like I said go with the biggest filter you can afford or better yet two SLIGHTLY smaller filters

Two is the best way to go. The actual filtration rate is lower than what the manufacturer says (most of the time) so its best to double up.
