A HOB filter that is rated double your tank volume would do the job. Aquaclear is a really good brand that you might want to consider. You can pack in bags of carbon, GFO, etc...whatever you want instead of the others which have a specific filter cartridge/media. You could even turn the HOB filter into a mini refugium if it was large enough (like the AC 110).

Agree. An ac30 would be fine for a 10g. It has a decent sized opening that you could use a sponge, half unit of chemipure, ceramic media, whatever you like in there.
