Default 125 gallon suggestions

Hello, I'm in process of setting up my 125 gallon tank which will house a Front Kitumba colony of 6 - 8 fish, my filtration will consist of an emperor 400 and cannister, any suggestions on what cannister would work best? Also, would a powerhead also be suggested to increase water circulation? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

The Hagen FX5 is a pretty good filter, as is the Fluval 405 although not as big.

What canister will work best? There are many that will do a great job. Depends on your budget, but I would suggest an Eheim. Probably either the larger Pro II or the Pro III. IMO the Cadillac of canisters and best of all dead quiet.

Powerhead is not necessary.
