Some advice on filters

Hey I'm just setting up my 29g tank and was thinking of going for an external filter and was just wandering which kind would be the best? Thanks in advance!

Some advice on filters

I just got a Sunsun 302 and it's awesome.
And much less expensive than the big names.

I'm partial to Aquaclears, myself. An Aquaclear 50 would do very nicely on a 29 gallon tank.

I have no idea why, but for some reason I have never cared for filters that hang on the back. I don't like the look of them all popped up in the back. But I have always had fairly low profile hoods so they stuck out like a sore thumb.

I can see you point -- I hate tank clutter. Though ACs seem to be lower profile than most.
