no experience with these, but here's a $25 mini-canister filter:

supposed to be for nano tanks, but it's 80gph, so if that's too fast, you may want to impede it by putting a pre-filter sponge on the intake.
I used the Toms mini on a 5.5 for a long time. It was perfect. It wouldn't have been enough flow for any bigger of a tank. The way they arrange the media kind of blows, so I changed it around a bit. Also, people complain about the tubing, but I never had an issue.

I never considered the Zoomed, but for the money the Toms was great.
