I tried a HOT Magnum on my 30 g tank.  It was too powerful, churned 
the surface, blew my plants horizontally, and created a lot of air 
bubbles.  I took it out after a week and gave it to a friend with a 
saltwater tank.  He uses the micron filter without diatoms and is 
very happy with it, doesn't mind that it blows bubbles all over the 
place.   As I recall, it was rather noisy too.  I'm much happier with 
the Renaissance canister filter.
