i was also looking for a canister for my 12g Long recently. i went back and forth and read as many reviews as i could on the fluval, eheim and marineland brands, even looked on youtube.
bottom line is, they all are good products. there will be both good and bad experiences across all brands. i ended up going with an eheim 2213, its been up and running for almost two weeks now, it is very quiet and provides very nice flow and very clean water.

|sepulvd||am using a finnex px-360 for my 6 gallon. i think its perfect for tanks 10 gallons and less. its adds a extra .53g of water which helps. only downfall to me was i didnt think it was as big. its as wide and tall as my tank|

I have used both the Eheim line as well as the Rena xp series. My 29 gallon high-tech is currently operating with a Rena xp1. I have the filter housing packed with bio-filtration media, there is an inline heater, and I also run a DIY inline CO2 reactor. Consequently, the flow isn't exactly the best. I supplement this with an in-tank Koralia Nano 240 (very small and easily hidden). I have had absolutely no problems with this canister filter. It runs silently, it's simple to disconnect the intake and output hoses for cleaning, and it is VERY simple to get primed and running (No air-lock issues).
As others have already mentioned, to each his own. There are many canister filter brands. Each have pros and cons. All we, your fellow TPTers, can do is make our case for why we run what we run.

|exv152||The eheim 2215 would be good for your 36g bow front and a smaller 2213 or 2211 for your 8g. The Eheim CLASSIC series beats fluval any day in my book, and I have both. Solid german engineering.|

I have run most of the canisters on the market at one point or another.
I would be happy to give you a recommendation but I need more info.
Are we just talking about the 36G?
Or do you want two canisters, one recommendation for each tank?
