im a huge fan of Marineland Emperor 400 filters, I run them on all my 29 gallon tanks, im also a huge fan of over-filtration,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,as far as im concerned you cant over filtrate. I think its also easier on the eco-environment when running a filter that is larger than needed, providing your not over-killing with too much current for the size of the tank. It also makes it easier on the filter, to keep ahead of debris, and your filters will last longer between cleanings and last longer over all. Good Luck!
