Filter for UNS 3n?

I'm starting to plan my next tank, a UNS 3n. I'm curious if an Oase Filtosmart Thermo 100 would be suitable, or would it have too strong of a flow? I want a canister filter with a heater to keep the inside of the tank clean. Any thoughts?

What about the smallest Eheim? You could do an in-line heater with a temperature controller.

And if you're not 100% set on a canister, consider an Aquaclear 20. Its adjustable flow is perfect for all of my 3gal tanks.

What about the UNS Delta 60 canister filter? You can always add an inline heater to the plumbing. I'm trying to figure out if there's any spa inline heaters that'll work for my UNS 120U.

The oase will be too strong out of the box. But you can always just add a ball valve and some barbed fittings to turn down the flow.

Thanks for the responses, I think I'm leaning towards the eheim 150 with an inline heater. Or I'll go for a bigger tank!
