    If you go for an external then something capable of that heihht and able to do 1000 litres per hour at least. Also know that due to thee small footprint of these tanks not all species are suitable.

    Looks like you are getting some good advice

    I moved your thread to a better suited section of the forum.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I like the eheim classic series, not because it's the best filter but because they're good and simple filters and I know they work. I think I'd use a pair of eheim 2215s. Enough capacity and it allows you to stagger cleaning. However I wouldn't discount a gentle used 2217 either.
    Do make sure you get the quick connect taps for it.
    Alternative is the ex1200 from tetra.

    Which country are you in?
