Go with an AquaClear 110 HOB ....... so it at least looks like this:

Aquaclear 70

Or use a lot of custom made media like mine:

Cannister filters are too much trouble and too messy. People that use them seem to spend all their time on filtration instead of enjoying their fish.

Fluval AquaClear and C series have all the advantages of canister with ZERO of the mess and potential for leaks.
This post should be deleted, but I would like to respond to it instead.

First, define "dominators of this site" for me please.

50% water changes are a good thing. In fact, bigger is better. If your opinion is based on least effort, I'm afraid I have to rule it out immediately.

AquaClears are good filters. I've used plenty and have a few running now. Canister filters are in no way dirtier or higher maintenance than HOB filters. What experience are you basing this post on? What filters have you run? I can make a case that canister = HOB = sponge = Poret = box = UGF as far as filtration goes. They all have pros and cons, but they can all do the job.
