Yep librarygirl is right, I dont know your financial situation but a larger tank will be needed for alot of those fish you mentioned. The u2 has barely any room for media 2 prefilter sponges either side and a small plastic case for bio nodes/balls. Not bad for an internal for a lightly stocked 60. What pleco do you have?
If youre looking for a canister for the 60. I would recommend an eheim 2213 as it would be more than adequate filtration for any (suitable) fish for a 60L
I run actually run a U4 along side an eheim 2213 on my understocked 200L (52g) Dwarf mbuna species tank consisting of 10 fish.
I would actually get in contact with fluval and try to have your u2 fixed or replaced, buy an aquaclear like librarygirl said and try to find a cheap find on a larger tank. If i remember the U series have a 2yr garantee and at least 1yr so its definitely worth a go.
Thought id wack a picture up cause im proud of the rock scape ive done for it. Dont know if you can see the u4 at the top right above the 2213 intake though.
