Yes I bought an Eclipse 6 with BioWheel. The BioWheel filters are the way to go with almost all tanks. The wheel rotates through the water, picks up tons of oxygen, and mixes it with the good bacteria. That quickly converts ammonia to nitrite, and nitrate to nitrate, which is much less dangerous. You just do water changes to get rid of nitrate.
The Eclipse tanks are mostly small. That's good for space, but smaller tanks are more difficult to keep stable. A big tank would change temperature slower, ammonia can be controlled easier, etc. So don't overstock, and do check the water frequently with such a small tank. Also, add a heater to keep it a steady temperature.
