Question New 10g Filter

I have a 10g and i have kept the old filter. it has been 7 years! It has started to rattle off and on and i thought i would treat my-self to a new filter. Does anyonehave any suggestions?

Cam

P.S. The tank is a guppy breeding tank.

Many people here like the bio wheel filters by marineland. Aquarium Power Filters: Marineland Penguin BIO-Wheel Power Filters I use them, and my water is crystal clear in my 10 gallon.

If you're planning on using the tank to breed guppies, I suggest a sponge filter. I have a big sponge filter in my 10g guppy breeding tank. The fry love to pick at bits of stuff that has collected on the sponge, plus there's no worries about the filter eating the fry.
