Question 125 Gallon South American Cichlid Tank


Looking for any and all advice I can get for best equipment suggestions for my new Aqueon 125 Gallon Aquarium. Dimensions are:

Tank: 72.5 in L x 18.5 in W x 23.4 in H
Stand: 74 in L x 21 in W x 30.6 in H

I have not set it up yet. But I have purchased the following items:

Fluval FX6 Canister Filter
LED Lights and Glass lid

I will be moving extra Bio-Max Media from my FX4 (currently in a Hex Front 44 Gallon) into my new FX6 to help start the cycle. I will be moving a Green Terror, an Albino Tiger Oscar, a Jack Dempsey, and a Texas Cichlid from the 44 to the new 125 once its cycled. All four fish are about 3 or 4 inches or so currently.

My first question is regarding filtration and surface agitation. Will the FX6 be enough or should I be looking at additional filtration and/or a Wavemaker or something to assist? Also, should I be looking for more flow in the lower half of the tank as well?

I would like Suggestions on what else I should add, as well as Size, Brands, How many, One direction or from both ends etc. Any advice from those of you with a similar tank type would be greatly appreciated.

I am also planning on using two 4 inch Hygger round Air Stones as well (mostly just an aesthetics thing). I already have a goo sized pump for them as well.
