The RedSea unit would not be very cost effective. You would be refilling your cylinder more times then most would care to.
You would at least need a 5lb cylinder. My advice would be to get the largest cylinder you can fit.
Filling a 10lb cylinder will run you 15-19$
Filling a 5lb cylinder will run about $15-17.

With a big tank come a big filter.
Have you decided on what you would like to get?
With big tanks I prefer large media filters, for example an Ehiem 2260 or 2262.
Those are big plug and play filters that move a ton of water.
You will most likely want to utilize a reactor for co2 diffusion. Or you could opt for a needle wheel pump for this as well. Both are fairly inexpensive to find. The reactor being the least and very easy to install.
