Exclamation Filtration for 125gal??? Help

Ok so I am going to set up my 125gal tank soon I have picked out everything I want but I am still confused on the right thing to do with the filtration. I know I want to get an xp cannister filtration but i don't know if I should get 2 xp2's or 2 xp3's. I am going to keep fish such as tetra's, catfish, pleco, barbs etc, nothing big I dont want the filtration to suck up the fish but I want it strong enough to keep it clean as well. Any ideas please??? and thank you in advance.

You only need one filter, and the Rena XP3 will work well. I have this on my 115g five-foot tank with similar fish and it is good filtration.

You do not want two filters, that is wasting money for buying and operating.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
