Maxi Jets are probably more reliable because the motor is bigger and therefore should be stronger. A 10 gallon tank isn't very big and the Maxi may be too strong. If the fish are shwooshed around and can't control their swimming, then you know it's too strong.

A maxi jet 400 would work prety good. It is only 106 GPH.

I have 2 maxijet 400 in my 25 gallon Qt and it works great. Good flow but not too much.. I think 1 400 in your 10 would be good.
