Filter question

I know it's recommended to use a filter that pumps 4 to 5 times your tank but would this be enough for 100 gallons?

You could start with one but don't be surprised if you need to. One at each end of the tank. I use 4 Fluval 406's in my 220g. There are the big Fluval FX6's but of which you'd only need one but those are beasts and weigh a ton.

I'm really tight so I was hoping to go with one filter. It's a tall tank, too
