Sounds like your tank is cycling? Did you just set it up? Do you have fish in it? What size tank? 55g? AC500 would work for that.

Im going to assume by 4' tank you are refering to a 55 gallon. I like canisters so I would get an eheim 2015 for biological and probably add a ac500 for a couple reasons. They are good at polishing the water because of the high turnover and also, should you need a hospital tank or want to set up a new tank you will have a cycled filter.

Id probably go with a couple of Emporer 400s or Penguin 330s, then take out the carbon and put some filter floss in there to get a little mechanical filtration
