Which canister filter should I use with cichlids (or any fish)?

I am considering the aquatop uv 400 (cf400uv)... I have a 50 gallon and understand that this is a highflow for such a tank but I've used it before.. This one runs at 130 bucks and does NOT include media.

I am wondering if anything for a comparable price could work better?

I know eheims are sold with media so I am thinking that saves 40 bucks initially!

If you have a suggestion for Ehirm

Do you have the exact code? What size tank is it for (not your tank); but the specs?
