I have 2 eheim canisters on my big tank and an ac300 on my 29 gallon...either of these brands imo is the way to go...

Look at the Eheim ecco canisters, they are suitable for your size tank I think....or a 2213 or 2215....

Looks like your in the UK, you might want to try www.bigalsonline.com Its a great site with some cheap prices. Not sure if they ship over the pond. Although i don't see a problem if you pay the price.

If you are looking for reliable, quiet and efficient filtration ... chose Eheim. I have been using Eheim cannister filters for quite a while now and I highly recommend them , they are a bit pricey but well worth the "extra" few dollars. For your 60gal tank I would look at the Eheim 2215 or 2217 (check out www.Eheim.com). I run (3) 2217's and (2) 2213's plus some Aquaclear filters.

I have 2 AC300 and 1 AC500 on my 55 and wouldn't have it any other way, AC are the best that I have found, use them on all of my tanks.

Isn't that a little too much filtration on that 55 gallon? Just curious.

I don't think you can have too much filtration, I don't have them turned up all the way to try and keep the currents down. It is in a tank that has tanganyikan cichlids and they don't like too much current.
