Neither. Double sponge is the way to go for ACs!

The 204 is close to that, check the actual price. Worth the extra cash too.

Sorry, AC = AquaClear . Use two sponges instead of the activated carbon. Everytime you run the bottom-most sponge in old tank water to clean it, swap it with the other sponge so you don't lose all your bio-bacteria. I buy an additional blue sponge from Big Al's instead of the hagen one, so it makes it easy to differentiate between the two during filter cleanings.

I have a bunch of tetras (18 or so), 2 oto cats, a small angelfish (which will move to a different tank in a while) and 3 small, friendly cichlids, and the filter is probably more than enough filtration for the tank.

A 204 will provide more flexibility and more surface area for filtration. A lot more filtration IMO.

AquaClears are easy to use and cheaper. You have to weigh it up.
