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.

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.
