I've heard some not-so-great things about the Eheim Liberty filters. I would go with the Aquaclear if I were you, I use 2 of them and have found them to be very quiet. Plus, you don't have to change filter cartidges because they use a foam block instead, which you can just rinse out in tankwater every month or so during a water change.

I've used http://www.aquaticlifeaquariums.com.au/ and http://www.aquaria.com.au and both did the job for me. THe first when I wanted the cheapest price, the 2nd when I wanted a specific item.

Maybe try a sponge with a good quality air pump?

After reading a little on this board and others, the three options i was considering were the Aquaclear Mini, Eheim Canister Classic 2213 and Eheim Canister Ecco 2232
go with the aquaclear

I've moved over 200gph through 8g. Currently 140gph (measured) to keep it calmer for some new fish If youre doing a kuhlii loach or like tank it will work. You can see pics and log of this tank in link in my sig if you want. I originally used just 100gph (rated, not measured) Cascade HOB and was very happy with it. Aquaclear, etc would also be good if HOB is preferable -- keep output of filter below water line to keep it quieter. You could also do natural tank (plants as filter, no noise) - search TankGirl's posts for pics of her pretty 5g if you want inspiration
