need help deciding what filter for 150g

well title says it i hava a 150 gal tank with 2 stingrays and a few other fish and atm i have 4 hob filters. well i would like to lose some of them and cant reallly decide on what type of canister or what would be the best overall filter. i have in mind 2 marineland 350 magnum bio-wheel pro's. i no this keeps 4 little wheels hanging on the back but it still clears up 2 electrical sockets. and another thing i was thinking was the rena cannister because of the heater that rena makes for there filters i kinda like especially for the rays not burning themselves on. so basically i need help making up my mind so any personal experience or just advice on either or a totally different system would be great. thx

I would always go with a canister filter especially on larger tanks. I have had Eheim for 14 years and never a problem. They also have models with the heating unit included in the filter; I have one on my 90g and love it. It has been running now for 12 years non-stop and never a problem filter or heater-wise. Probably a bit more expensive to buy (Eheim) but over time less costly to operate and very reliable.
