I use and prefer hagen elite, mostly because it is tiny and discreet and can be hidden well. If you wanted added filtration, I would maybe use the Zoomed as it looks to have more filtering capability than the Elite mini.

Having used both, I was not at all impressed with the ZooMed. I've tried just about every method of diffusion and I recommend the Elite. It has been the most effective, compact option.
