Filter upgrade for fluval chi

What filters has everyone been using on their chi?

I'm thinking of swapping to an aftermarket light and a hob or mini canister to upgrade this little tank.

Not sure about the size of the chi, or light intensity that you want, but the fugeray or ray 2 would work well and give you a streamlined look. Eheim 2211 or Zoo Med 501 (maybe).

the tank is 10x10x12"
For lighting i'm debating between the Fugeray 10" or the EcoPico led arm

For filtration would the eheim211 or zoomed 501 be smaller? Its on my dresser so what ever is thinner/can hide behind it will be the winer.

So I went with the finnex fugeray. Next thing to figure out is what filter or mini canister to go with. My biggest thing is that its super quiet since its on my dresser
