    I have finally picked out a tank and a location. :^:

    Its an aqueon 120 gallon, 4ft X 2ft X2ft; drilled. Im wondering what do do for filtering. its drilled in two places, so I would need two external filters. Any suggestions for styles or brands in peticular?

    Quieter would be better, ideally, but i dont want to compromise for quality.

    If it is drilled, it's made to use a sump. You will want to set up a sump for that tank, and for the sump, you can either use an algae scrubber or a protein skimmer.

    You can search the DIY section for some ideas on running a sump
