It depends on what your wanting to keep in the tank and how big the tank is..

If you have a really high bio-load I would suggest a wet/dry filter in a sump.. If you have a really big tank I would suggest the same.. or even looking into algae scrubber in a sump for a really big tank..

I have 2 Penguin 330's and 2 Emperor 400's. The simplicity and ease of cleaning have these filters, the filters of choice for me.

It all depends on what size tank you have. For example, I wouldn't put a canister on my 5 gal tank, but I wouldn't use hob's for my 55 or 150 gal tanks.

It depends on so much....the tank size, the fish (species and size), the overall bioload, etc....

I would agree that it depends on size, bioload, what's in it, and the like.

I agree with everyone else, depends on the tank size, fish, plants, tank shape, etc. That being said. I prefer the canister filters. They don't need as much weekly work and can handle a good size bioload. Just MHO.

This is one of those where it depends on the individual. Whatever you think is better, is better.
