I imagine thats about any filter

Eheim are great filters with a long heritage, the Aquatop and also the Sunsun are cheaper and you will notice little things where costs are cut, but they are also great filters and many people here have used many of them with no issues.

Take a look at Aquatop and SunSun

Aquatop and Sunsun are up and comers with some great products. They are essentially the same brand. Some of the plumbing parts aren't so good, but the filter assemblies are built to last.


This is not a bad filter. The rating is for something much larger than what is sounds like you are looking for, but I think that you can not really have too much filtration. And with the capacity of this filter you can easily keep it if you upgrade your tank. The other thing is that for $89 on ebay, even if the filter isn't good at its rated tank size of 175g, you know it will easily handle the bio load on a tank half that size.

aznartist34 Pretty much almost all name brand canister filters "rated" for the size of your tank and fine filter materials will fit the needs you are looking for. Of course the top brand names are eheim and fluval and rena.
