I would go for the Mariland peguins because they are a high brand and have BIO-wheels. I had an aqueon and after the filter got a little dirty the water overflowed and it skipped the cartridge(and it was a 45 gallon filter, I have a 20 gallon). The Marineland BIO-wheel filters have a very neat and clever design that lets you put in double cartridges and ofcourse the BIO-wheel is where all the bacteria live and it never has to be replaced unless it breaks(which is prettyy unlikely) and the water never skips the cartridge filter. I would get the one for 30 gallon tanks so you have a little more filtration, but dont get one larger than that because its going to mess with the biological stuff( someone told me that, it makes sense) so yeah thats my two cents but yeah just keep asking questions anything that you might have in mind ask it could mean a drastic change in the health and well-being of your little fishies!!!
take care and happy fish keeping!!!
