Default which filter???

hi all,
wondering has anyone got any idea`s on a filter for my 5ft tank???
it holds 260 litres 58 gallons water was looking for an internal one but seems to be a problem,?
do you have to go to external when the tank is larger
if so have you got any ideas on a good one been to my lfs and they
dont seem to have any that large???
would a fluval 305 be big enough or i have seen one by jebo???
it say`s for aquariums up to 460 litres 2300 litres per hour my guess this is ample but it doesnt look that big ???
ive seen them on ebay about 25+
thanks for any replys or advice on this really stuck on this
p.s im hoping to have angelfish loaches in here if that helps

I am sure the Fluval 305 would be just fine.......I am a fan of HOB filters and use Emperor 400s.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
