I picked up a National Geographic canister filter that was on clearance at Petsmart. I only tried it because I read that it was basically a rebranded Eheim Ecco. When I got it home the impeller shaft was completely missing from the impeller so I figured I would just order one. That did get it working again but I measured how long it took to fill a 5 gallon bucket and it was around 7 minutes! I figured out the gph to be around 40 gph, so barely enough to do a 10 gallon. I kept it because it was only $27 and I would lose the other $10 the impeller shaft had cost. I am not sure if this is what the smallest Eheim Ecco does or if I got a defective one but I am running it on a 20 gallon QT tank with a HOB and it seemed to help a lot with Biological filtration. It holds a good amount of Matrix and has 2 filter pads. I think it would be good for a 10 gallon.
