Planning new 75gal Mbuna tank

I am purchasing a 75 glass tank today and planning how to put it all together. Pet Smart has the Marineland glass tank, stand, top and light on sale for $299 so I am on it. It has been many years since I have kept fish/Africans in a tank so I will be proceeding slowly.

My question is on filtration. They have the Fluval FX6 $250 and FX4 $200 on sale and trying to decide which one. Thinking four groups of Mbuna 1m:4f each group so 20 fish or so.

Thanks for any recommendations on which filter size to go with.

Thank you everyone. The tank is under way and I am also working on temporary apartment type housing for the fishes.
