What Equip to Ask For? SA tank

Hey,
I have a planted South American tank and a wonderful girlfriend, who wants me to pick out something for my fish tank for my birthday She's so awesome.

The tank isn't stocked yet, but here's the stock list: 4x Bolivian Rams, 10x Card. Tetras, 7x Hatchets

So my tank, is pretty low-tech. 30 gal, I have a Tetra Whisper 60 Filter, hydor theo heater, and a 39w T5HO light.

My question is:

What piece of equipment will give my tank the biggest bump in water quality/quality of life for my fish?

A good canister filter. Eheim or Rena are the brands that I like. Better filtration, lower maintenance, quieter and out of the way. Plus way more options for types of filtration.
