Hoovercat highlighted a great filter. They are cheap in price but great in quality.

I would also go with the emperor, and second I would recommend the aqua clear. it is the only HOB that I can think of with customizable filtration.

Wowa! Thanks for the replies. So most people are saying a HOB. So I'm going with a HOB. Then people are saying Emperors and Aquaclears. So which one? I had an aquaclear on my 10 gal before, it was nice. Any good comparisons with the two?

The Aquaclear lets you have the flexability of any media you want, it has the basket.. The Emperor is a good filter but it as cartrages you have to buy but it has the bio-wheel.. I like the Aquaclear for its flexability.. I dont like having to buy media cartrages for a filter when I can get bulk media to put in my filter.. cuz Im cheap!!
