Default Filter Recommendations

I'm planning to get a larger tank for my 2 axies in the near future and will need to upgrade the filter as well. I thought I'd ask if anyone has any recommendations for filters before I purchase the new one.
The tank will probably be about 50-55 gallons.
Thanks!
Neely

I like the Eheim Classic, which is a canister filter; for that size tank you'd probably go with the 2217 model.

If you wanted to go HOB I would recommend the Aquaclear filters.

I have an Eheim which is great, so quiet! Better than the Fluval I just got rid of.

And I avoided the Fluvals due to reports of leaking when the electricity goes out.
