Canister filter for 40 gallon

Can anyone suggest for me a good canister filter for a 40 gallon breeder tank? not lookin to spend more than a hundred bucks.

Also, with canister filters, do they tend to make plants sway?

Try to find a used eheim if you can.

As for circulation and swaying plants, depends on how you setup your filter return as well as the power of the filter you choose.

Only bad things happen quickly.

I decided to go with the Sun Sun HW-302 filter. Looks pretty simple to put together, and not too much stuff in the tank, and really reasonably priced. 50 dollars shipped. Also good up to a 75 gallon tank!

I really didn't wanna opt for the one with the UV sterilizer. I've never needed/used one of those really.
