New HOB filter for 55 gallon.

I am looking for something to supplement my cannister filtration with. Specifically I am looking for a powerful HOB filter for around 65$. I want something that is quality in which I can change in and out different filtration media. I would prefer to buy online and have checked out some of the websites. I am looking for suggestions? Do Eheim or Fluval have any HOBs?

Thank you so much for all your help. I'm back into the hobby with a new vigor!
