GuppyGirl, I can say with complete confidence that the 10 gallon wal-mart kits are sufficient, especially on a budget. I can also advise you that if you look, you will likely find that they also sell the identical kit for a few dollars more, with a flourescent lighting unit. I know, I have one myself, purchased at wal-mart. The HOB filters that come with these kits, although somewhat cheap in appearance, have proven reliable, and are a much quieter operating unit than the more expensive Whisper Power filters. I have a 29 gallon kit purchased at walmart as well the two 10 gallon kits, and have yet to experience any troubles with it whatsoever.
