    Can you put anything next to the tank? Like a small table with 2 canister filters, at a slightly lower level than the base of the tank? Otherwise several really powerful HOB filters would be my recommendation.

    The only issue i see with hobs is that the intake tube will get in the way of my rock stacking.

    I have a 125 and I have a Fluval FX-6 and two AC 110s. If it were me I would run three AC 110s.

    Sponge filters would work.

    3-4 of these   They are outstanding filters. I use them and will never again waste my time and money on the lesser filters on the market. I have had mainland filters running for years (Magnum, Penguin, Emperor) I have a Magnum canister that has been running for over ten years. Never once have any of them failed.
