It is more a question of what looks best in a display tank. I'm setting up
a 20G Extra Tall, which is the same footprint as a 10. I'll probably use a
Fluval 1 inside power filter as an aesthetically acceptable device with a
lot of potential for creating the current my Lampeyes like.
If you want air-driven, the Hydro-Sponge filters available at :
are good, as are the (discontinued?) Tetras. A lot of us favor the Dirt
Magnet (Jungle?) as a lot of filter for the money.
