10g canister filter ?

I setup a 10gallon tank largely for a QT and hospital purposes.

I currently have the cheap Topfin HOB FILTER and added a corner filter that I filled with ceramic rings.

Is there a canister that could replace all of this?

I was thinking about the sun sun 603b.

Any suggestions? Thanks

I've always thought that canister filters were overkill for 10 gallons and not worth the money for that small of a tank. Why do you want a canister filter?

I have a 2 corner filters and it seems to take up so much space. I figured a cheap canister like the sun sun 603b would be a good idea. I found it on eBay for 25 dollars.

I got a Sunsun 302 about 2 months ago and so far it has worked great.

I like the sun sun filters. I have a 404 on my 125 and it's a great filter. I'll let you know about the smaller ones.
