If you get a HOB filter that pumps 10 times the number of gallons in your tank per hour, that's a good amount of filtration. So if you have a 10 gal tank, get a filter that pumps at least 100 gal. per hour. Penguin Biowheels and AquaClear filters are good. Those are the ones I use and like. Hope that helps.

If this is a saltwater tank, maybe you need to post your question in the saltwater forum. I don't know much about saltwater, maybe the filtration needs are different.
