my rule of thumb is that you can never have enough filteration.
Unless the fish look like they are in the spin cycle of a washing machine.

Aside from canisters, there are submersible filters. I have a fluval and a cascade and I like them very much. Plus the cats can't drink from the tank!!

I am running an Ecco 2234 on my 37 gal and it is woefully inadequate, with particles floating all over and the intake is not pulling them in, so it would probably work on a smaller tank. I'm going to upgrade to the 2236.

I don't think the Ecco series is as powerful as the classic series, like the 2213, but they are so much easier to maintain. I think a 2213 would be fabulous on a 20gal. I saw on the Eheim site that they now make media baskets for the classic series, so you can pull them out and arrange them, which would change my life when I go to clean my 2215. Something to think about.
