the ehiem professional 3 has a massive bio capacity around 5 gallons, the eheim will probably run you $400 american. The fx5's ive seen for $400 in stores and $200 on ebay. Try ebay if you want to get a fx5, i dont know how much the shipping will cost tho.

I bought my FX5 brand new here in the states for $250 from my local fish store.

I bought 2 ac110's from petsmart.com for 100$ including shipping. 2 ac110's would not do the job for a 157 gallon, you would need to throw a canister on there too.

I saw today a fx5 at my LFS for 300$ on sale, regular at 400$.
As for AC110, they don't seem too expensive and have a great filtering capacity with 500 gph. I'm not sure how much they cost in Canada, but I've found them on a US site Petsolutions - AC110 for 39.99$ US. That comes to 47 $ canadian... not too expensive for all those gph ! Anyways, I guess you can find similar prices in your city...

Well it seems like you're going to keep a shoal in there, so you really should go for 10x turnover. If you really want to use just one more filter then that would be an FX5. Must be pricey up in Canada...check ebay for one.

If it was my tank i would do three AC110's and an XP3

The FX5 is over kill for that size tank. You could get something just as good for your size tank for half the cost of the FX5.

Theres no such thing as overkill, and if you are going to keep a shoal of pygos you will need all the filtration you can get.

How is an FX5 overkill? They are rated at something like 900gph...10x turnover would be ideal which would be around 1500gph....Not to mention you can never have to much filtration I.M.O..
