eheim pro3e media/ inline heater/uv/co2

I'm planning on picking up an ehiem pro 3e 2078 for my 55 gallon long. It is a south American tank with gbr south American bumble bee cats. Two angels and two needle fish. What media should I get? And what level should I put them at? Looking for an inline iv/ heater and co2. Any advice on brand and size. And is this too much in line?

Well what you can do is split it up if you're concerned with having too much inline. Get 2 smaller canisters and then get 2 200W inline heaters, a UV and a Diffuser. Have the diffuser one on canister and the UV on the other so you're not killing your flow. You can always get a canister with built in UV and then bypass having to buy another inline one (that way you could roll with just 1 filter ).
