I have a fluval 305 on one 40b and an eheim 2224 on another. I really like certain things about both, but the 305 definitely has more flow. I'd recommend either for that tank.

I don't use in-lines so someone with more experience would need to comment on that.
Yeah I'm trying to get this tank to look like nothings in it from the start.

Just bought a Eheim 2217 and the Hydor 200w 1/2in in-line heater. I got everything I needed on ebay for 175 shipped! I dont need to mod any of the tubing for the in-line heater, it just plugs into the original filter tubing.

Now I just need to figure out if I need a CO2 setup for my plants...Hopefully I get everything before the weekend

+1 ... an in-line might require some adjusting. I'm not sure what members have one ... I have a regular in tank heater ... but I still wouldn't think your limited by what heater you can use.
