While I'm sure the zoomed is a great filter, keep in mind that it's $50. I've been using a Red Sea art-deco nano filter for my 5 gallon, and it keeps the water crystal clear. Best part is it only cost me $15 at my lfs, which means it's probably cheaper elsewhere. It depends on whether or not you NEED to use a canister filter, I suppose.
You seem to be off to a nice start!
