Best HOB for a 29 gallon reef?

I have decided to take the canister filter off of my 29 gallon reef. It works good but is too much maintenance. What is the best HOB to get for this tank? I have a marineland biowheel 350 and dont like it. It is too noisy and doesnt have alot of options for media. Looking for opinions and experience. If you have a suggestion I would like to know what you run in the HOB also! Thanks!

I'd have to agree. I myself do not need one since I have a Bio Cube but many of my friends use the AC70 or AC110.

One of my friends has a 110 on his 10 gallon. Whatever works right?

Bottom line... I think the AC70 would be a great choice.
