Mag pumps are always highly recommended. They are good balance of quality and price. A comparable pump to the Catalina 3K would be the Mag 9.5.

I personally run an eheim. They are about the quietest commonly available pump, and are German made. The Germans make the best pumps in the world!
The 1262 would be a comparable pump to the Catalina 3K.

I know both of these options are considerably more than the Catalina, but in this hobby you often get what you pay for - and your return pump is a crucial piece of equipment. It needs to run reliably, produce as little heat as possible, and often quiet is a desirable characteristic. Catalina has some OK products, but they are not known for their pumps. I would stick with Mag Drive or Eheim - in my opinion.
