The filters I have used the Hagen Marina and the Aqueon both hang on the back (hob
) have been good, and not burned up.
Pointers would be not leave on the filter while adding water and doing partial water changes, moving around stuff in the tank.
Adding a pre-filter sponge. Helps and not keeping thwe intake too close to the sand at the bottom, but maybe 1/3 of the way down maximum.
-though I don't have experience specifically with the one you mentioned. I have burned up several.
