You could use a sponge filter. I use them in all of my 10s. To me a power filter would be overkill unless you have a very heavy bioload or have fish that need a strong current.

A 4" acutirostre should be fine with 2 1/2 to 3" ansorgii. I wouldn't get very active dither fish, though, since ansorgii are very deliberate eaters & may not get enough food.
