What are your thoughts on this filter? I'm thinking of getting one for my tank since my filter broke (whisper).

I use both the Marineland Penguin and Emperor filters. I love 'em.

I've got one of those, and I've had no problems with it, although I just got a small 80 GPH canister filter on sale for $19 on Drs. Foster & Smith and I'm LOVING it. It's awesome being able to customize the filter media.

I've got a penguin mini on a 10G. It works well enough, but the wheel doesn't really like to spin. Also, we left the cap off for a while and had a serious evaporation problem.
