Best Hob filter for a 5.5 gallon tank

Looking for suggestions for a good filter for my 5.5 gallon tank. It will be heavily planted, and would prefer a slimmer hob, maybe with compartments for bio filtration, rather than the simple carbon filled cartridge only ones.

Yea, I like my aquaclear on my larger tank....but do they come in something rated for a 10 gallon? I am doing a shrimp tank and dont want to blast them with too much flow.

I have one on my betta tank. I like it actually. Instead of the carbon cartridges it comes with I just cut up some filter pad and inserted them into the compartments instead.
