Filter for 10 Gallon?

I currently have an Aqueon Quiet Flow 10 HOB and want to get a better filter to handle a bigger bio load. I was thinking an Aquaclear 20 as a replacement? Has anyone had any problems with the Aquaclear 20? I'd like some suggestions though to make sure there I'm not missing out on better options.

If I were to go with a filter that can take 20 gallons how many more inches of stock would I be allowed to mess with? Would it just be adding another 10 inches? I'm choosing low waste producers.. (Guppies, tetras, shrimp, etc.)

I had no problems with my 4 AquaClear 20s in the last 2 years.
