Canister filters fresh water

Starting an Oscar tank and looking for what brand canister filters anyone could recommend for a decent price that are rated up to 100-120g. Tank is 75g. I saw that Eheim filters had a good rating, but didnt like the green tubing.

Fluval 406 + a ac110.


I always run multiple for that "just in case".

My 55 has 2 110's on it. My 135 has a fx5 and a 110 on it. I would run two of the 110's on the 135 but I don't like all the clutter on the back wall of the tank.

You could always paint the back of the tank and you won't see the tubes...

+1 for fluval. Eheim is however top of the line, but my fluval 306 is doing a great job.
