Personally I'd go the RFF then the upflow bottle cap filter (shitloads easier to clean than shadecloth). The only problem with the filters is when they go anaerobic but having a bit of crap in there is not a drama and probably contributes to the nutes in the water. :)

... for Catfish. Used dual 20L buckets, basically pumped water from aquarium => into bottom of first bucket filled with shade cloth in the bottom then a foam filter pad on top to filter small material then this exited the top => into bottom of second bucket full of K1 with an aerator for bio-filtration ...
