Best Canister for 68 Gallon Cichlids


I have a friend that may be starting a cichild tank. We are looking into equipment now. What canisters do you recommend?

So far this is what Im looking at.

Penn Plax Cascade 1000 - I have the 700 on my 29 gallon. I have had no issues with it

Eheim 2215 Classic - Is there room for some ceremic bio filters?

Rena Filstar XP M - Is what replaced the XP3's etc? I saw there is a brand change or something?

Anyone suggest anything else?

For the cost why go with a brand name?
