Help me decide on a 55 gal filter

Hi folks.

I just acquired a 55 gallon tank that needs a filter. I plan to stock it with
12 x tiger barb
6 x blackskirt tetra
6 x zebra danio
1 x cory cat
2 x Bristlenose pleco

I'm limited to about $75, so have it narrowed to the Sunsun HW-303A (aka Aquatop 400 w/o UV) for $65 (plus another $15 or so for media), or the Aquaclear 110 for $59.

I'm leaning towards the AC110 but was looking for some advice first. Any comments are appreciated. I'd love to go for an Eheim 2217 or Rena XP3 instead, but those are outside my price range right now.

No contest; the aquaclear is more reliable, easier to clean/maintain, and pumps significantly more water. Also consider, replacement parts are easily available for the aquaclear.
