It really is interesting that the cheap walmart brand filters seem to work so well. They are simple and quite, and have great flow. If I was ever to have a fish room I would start some tanks of with these! I have 3 of them and they have been running for 6 years now nonstop. One of them has not even been removed from the tank!

3 marineland biowheel filters rated for caught on fire, one had issues restarting after tank change (impeller wouldn't rotate), all noisey but decent flow. Worked for 4+ years..

2 fluval 305's - love them both, work great, nice flow, EZ to clean, and the best thing of all, they are QUITE! Had for around a year..

Spong filter for 10gal, no name but works great!

Undergravel filter for a 10 gal, also worked great!
