I'm with you on the cannister filter TygGer. I don't think you can over filter and aquarium. The cannister will also be less intrusive on your goldies giving them more room. I've no experience with Via Aqua, but am a believer in Fluval. Fluval has a great design for ease of cleaning.

I've got the via aqua- just set it up on a new 37- I admit it had me worried at first- it was noisy (due to air in the system) when I had a pantyhose cover on the intake (I was waiting for the sand to settle!), but as soon as I took off the pantyhose, the filter is quiet as a mouse and works beautifully

So far it's about 1 vote for the Fluval and 2 for the Via Aqua??

Here's a pic:

I just cleaned the Fluval and Via Aqua canisters today. I wanted to give my seal of approval once again for the Via Aqua. It is so much easier to move! Plus, I forgot the trays on the inside have handles. This Via Aqua is used on an 80 gal tank and does a great job. The trays are large and hold more media IMO (when compared to a relative sized Fluval).
