I have an Eheim Pro on my 40g. Love it! Lots of folks like Fluval and some others, too. Avoid Marineland C series. Marineland makes some good products, but their canister filters have issues.

Eheim Pro is expensive, but worth it. They also have a classic that is much less expensive, but I haven't heard a bad word about them.

You can get good deals on equipment on Amazon.

For cichlid, puffer, fowlr, or reef tank, I'd use Fluval fx5 after adding some media into the basket.
