For new 180 gal tank, looking at CPR 2000 or CPR 3000 wet dry's.

Both have two bio towers for two inputs, 3000 had a separate sump area which while may be overkill for a 180, it does seem to provide area for needlewheel pump for CO2, heaters, etc. 2000 doesnt seem to have much open sump area but hard to tell by pictures.

Thanks in advance for comments

The value of a biological filter depends on how well it performs the tasks
of oxygenation, ammonia conversion and gas exchange on a long term
basis. In the wet/dry filter, air and water mix as water trickles over the
exposed filter media, Bio Bale. Biological filtration and gas exchange
occur as the water flows in a thin layer over the media surface. CR Series
filters provide optimum growing conditions for bacteria that oxidize nitrite
and toxic ammonia. The rapid oxidation of ammonia and nitrite helps to
maintain a stress free environment for aquatic life. CPR filters are
designed for long-term reliability and ease of maintenance
Simple in concept, Bio-Bale owes its extreme effectiveness to its high surface area
versus volume and its unique surface texture. With 250 square feet of surface area
per cubic foot and 33 square feet per gallon, Bio-Bale cannot be matched. Bio-
Bale is produced from one continuous piece of F.D.A. approved, non-toxic plastic
designed specifically for CPR. Bio-Bale is measured precisely by computer to
achieve a consistent surface area.

Bigger is better when it comes to wet/dry filters.
