I actually used a HOB power filter for a year when I first got into saltwater years ago.. Worked fine.. I'd say go with whatever fits your budget.. That's why I used a HOB power filter for so long, because I was in high school and didn't have a lot of money.. The key really is water changes and having an excellent skimmer.. Good luck
