what is your fav hob filter?

I was wondering what is your favorite HOB filter? and why?
so you like a particular one biased on tank size?

I am pondering on upgrades, and filters for new tanks. Just wanted to see what everyone likes.

I don't really like hob filters in general but if I have to choose one, it would be aquaclear, followed by the aqueon quietflows because those are the only ones I've had besides the aquatech line, which is decent.

I have had Aqueon, Marineland, and Aquaclear filters. I like the Aquaclear the most out of the 3 brands.

I run an fx5 canister but for HOB it's aquaclear hands down for me. The 110.

The aquaclear is my choice. I have two 110s on my 55g. I like the customizable media you don't necessarily have to buy a certain brand of media
