Canister Filter

I have a eheim professional 3.
I have it on a 65 gallon FOWLR tank. Everything has been going great, water conditions are great. Recently the filter started leaking. I did PWC and it stopped leaking. About 2 weeks later it leaked a little bit and stopped. I was a little worried so I put it in a pan just in case. I came home from work today and it has leaked over the pan and all in the stand and on the floor. Any ideas? I have a hang on the back refugium on this tank as well and it has a small protein skimmer built in. Does anyone have any ideas as to a filter that will not leak? I have 2 clowns, a fox face, a serpent starfish, emerald crab, and some hermits, and snails. Can I go with a hang off the back filter. It is not a drilled tank and I don't want to add a sump to it.
