tax time filter upgrade


so ive got a 90g planted tank ive had running for almost 8 months now.
i am currently running a aquaclear 70 and a sunsun 303b on my tank. the aquaclear doesnt exactly fit over the plastic rim on my tank so i had to push it down as far as it would go so it still sits kind of high....now that im getting some money back from taxes i was thinking of upgrading my filtration....i could just upgrade my aquaclear 70 to a 110 or i could upgrade it to another canister and run two canisters on the tank.....im not sure what i should do and need some advice and some help decideing feel free to recommend some different filters and tell me why you all think each filter would be worth getting....and even though i have a little money to spend i really dont think ill be buying a 400 dollar fluval g filter so be resaonable with your suggestions

I'm always a fan of Eheim canisters. You could go with a 2217 that would go nicely with your Sunsun. Or, if you'd prefer, why not get another Sunsun?
