If it ain't broke, don't fix it. It is nice to have some redundancy/additional capacity though.

Perhaps an additional smaller canister. I won't recommend a power filter, since it seems they are not that common over there, which has always been a mystery to me.

Be aware the manufacturer's stated capacities are
*designed to sell filters, not maximize your potential for success
*usually overrated
I use overfiltering the manufacturer's guidelines by 2x as a rule of thumb, especially with large fish, even relatively neat ones. So if I had a 200L tank, I would put *2* "200L" rated filters on it. ---->>>"Belt and suspenders".

Splitting the filtering over two filters spreads the risk of breakdown and gives you more options.
