HOB filters for the 10 and 15, the 5 should be able to get along good with an air driven sponge filter or a corner filter.

Tetra, Aquaclear and Prnguin all make a Mini made for 5 to 10 gal tanks. bigals carrys them. Perfect for that 5 gal.
A 37 GL but its really 27gl when full
Security at the expense of freedom results in neither.

I like a Penguin Mini for a 5-gal, since the sponge takes up almost a quarter of the tank space, LOL! The mini works great for a 5, biowheel and everything.
