Im looking for a good canister for a 125g. Oscar tank with some silver dollars I would like it to not be too expensive. I also would like it to be able to prime itself if the power goes out.
What would be some good brands to look into?
Also is there a good canister with a heater inside it, thats not as expensive as the eheim ones.

I don't recall seeing any cannisters besides the Eheim with built-in heaters. There's the Hydor in-line heaters if you're wanting to keep the heater out of the tank. If it for fear of the Oscars damaging them you could always opt for a titanium heater.

But with a tank full of big fish don't let even the biggest cannister filter(s) lull you into a false sense of security. Your fish will still benefit the most from regular water changes.
