Let me tell you first off that I have an Aquaclear hang-on-back 30 for my 10 gal. tank and I like it. Hanging on the back of the tank on one end (where the canopy has a cut-out for it) I get good circulation all the way down to the other end of the tank, even with the filter turned all the way down. If you still have your filter in you can buy online.
That having been said, I wonder what maakes you think your filter isn't keeping up. I would check the intake and look at the media inside the filter to see if it is clogged up. Check down at the other end of the tank for water movement - you probablly won't see any visible surface movement there, but hopefully deeper. Another thing to check is that the top of the filter is level. I eyeballed the front of the filter to see if it was parallel to the closest tank wall.
