People definitely like the Aquaclears. I really like my aquatechs, but most people don't recommend them.

Aqua Clear 50 works great in a 29g. If you're going to have goldies in there, I'd suggest 2 of them.

I like the marineland, penguin filters, a penguin 200 should be good enough, I like the bio wheels. They work well they even come with trays to add anything you want in it as well

Do the bio wheel filters make a lot of splashing water sound?

I second the suggestion of an aquaclear. Depending on your bioload i would go with the AC50 or the AC70, not much difference in price but you can never have too much filtration

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I dislike the splashing sound and ugliness of hang-on-tank filters. I have an Eheim 2213 on my 29g that seems to do the job, though I'd prefer a 2215.

Looks decent enough, but no reviews for their HOB model that I could find. Their canister got panned by a UK review, so based on that I'd pass myself. Get the AC50, you will not be disappointed .

I currently have 2 marineland emperors 400 gph on my 55g freshwater. I love the filters I highly recommend them. Little to no noise. The bio wheels acts as a beneficial bacteria. Comes with to empty slot with trays to add extra carbon or ammonia remover or whatever additives you wish. I currently cut my own filter pads to size and use the trays to mix ammonia remover and carbon. API ammo chips and API carbon. works great.
