Default Best filter for 55 gallon aquarium

I am setting up a 55 gallon aquarium for three axolotls, and am wondering what the best filtration would be. Any suggestions?

I would suggest a canister filter. It's the easiest option and if you use a chiller it'll hook up to it easily. I don't have a particular brand to recommend but for my turtle I use a aquamanta. I also have a small sunsun on my juvenile tank but once I have it filled up I'll probably also hook up a HOB. I also suggest using a sponge filter as well as a canister or HOB.
I would just stay away from any undergravel or internal filters :)

I am currently using a canister filter for my 29 gallon, that I happy with. Will have to see if they make a larger one that will handle 55 gallons.

You shouldn't have an issue finding one for a 55 gallon tank. My turtle tank is a similar size and the canister I'm using isn't the biggest model.
