Is this the only filtration you'll be using or supplimental? What fish are you keeping?

I would go with the biggest you can. Oscars are messy fish alone, not to mention the others (oscars are aggressive, so it may not work put...) try aiming for something thats around 100cm x 40cm and stock that full of biological media! Have a pump that does at least 5, 000 L/h and a few internal powers for added circulation. You may find that you may need multiple smaller 'sumps' running off individual (smaller) pumps.
