i like it. down the road if you want to get rid of the hob filter you can get aqua top cf500 canister. it would fit in the cabinet and be much less room on top. it cost around 120$ and its rated for a bigger tank but over filtration has never been a bad thing.

I liked the neon dwarf gourami or the blue gourami and yes I was looking at a canister filter but wasn't sure on how well they worked so I went with two of the emperor 400 bio wheel filters
