Fluval 404 is the most common choice if you want to get technical go with the a wet/dry not necessary for fresh water though.

I've two modified AC500's on my 75 gal Oscar/Plec tank.
Both of mine have been modified with Bio-Wheels, I've 12" of Bio-wheel in each ones outflow, I also use substitute media in the AC500's such as Chem-Stars for additional bio-filtration.
I have spraybars helping to drive the Bio-wheels which are powered by a medium sized powerhead (50-170gph with a DIY pre-filter), I've a Coralife Turbotwist 9watt UV sterilizer in-line on this sytem.

It stays pretty much spotless and the water chemistry is boring.

$100 for a new Fluval 404 sounds like a great deal. I wonder why your store was selling it so cheap.
