Fluval 406 or an Aquaclear 110

So I have a Fluval 406 now on my 55 gallon, but I am maxed out on stocking with 5 fish and I was thinking of getting another filter to help carry the load. Either one would be doubling up the filtration since they are for filtering 100 gallon tanks. What would you do?

Filters that give a rating based on gallons are not using a good benchmark. How can they know if you have 5 2" tetras in the tank or 10 8" goldfish? Being stocked at 11 gallons per fish I'd be tempted to go with another canister filter based in it's larger biological media capacity. You'll be doing lots of water changes once the fish get big either way.
