What would be the best filter for a 60 gallon aquarium?

Right now I have a HOB 350 marineland penguin bio wheel for my 60 gallon freshwater tank. but I hear they aren't the best filters to have. Not that they're terrible but there's better? I'm not familiar with other filter types and how they work but if my fish aren't getting the best filtration I would definitely like to change that! What would you recommend?

I've always liked the Aquaclear's. I like 110 I don't think that would be too much for a 60g

Not saying use this place just wanted to show you the filter. Shop around.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thanks! I hear good things about sponge filters! I'm curious what the difference is between the aqua clear sponge media and top fin/marineland media?
