They have very little media and are ptobably best for about 50%-60% of the volume that they are rated for, which kinda sucks, as they are so big that they would really dominate a 5-10 gallon tank. A shame, as they look really cool, though.

I would....even a sinlge Hydro sponge filter or small AquaClear would provide you with far more filtration for your dollar.

For AquaClears, I would suggest the AquaClear 30.....but the ideal filter will really depend on just what you plan on having in the tank.

10-20 gallons is pretty small for either brackish or marine.....except for perhaps a few bumbleebee gobies, or maybe a nano-reef (which is no easy or cheap thing to do). The Aquaclear is a good choice for either.
