Fluval 204 or AC200?

I'm setting up a 20 gal I bought a few weeks ago. The concensus here regarding HOB filters was that the AC200 is about as good as it gets. Would it be advantageous to go with a Fluval 204 or would that be overkill for a 20 gal tank?

John

I vote for the Fluval 204 as it is a canister filter with more capability in filtering than a HOB, unless that HOB is a Emperor series.

My opinion is to go with a penguin 170. Penguin filters have superior biological filtration to aquaclear models, as their biowheels don't need to be removed/replaced at any point. You could also go with the Emperor 280, thought this is slight overkill (but not detrimental).
