What brand of canister filter?
I've been reading that a canister filter would be better for my planted tank than my Penguin 200. What's a good canister filter that won't cost me a ton? I don't mind searching ebay - I actually found a new Fluval 304 for $49 buy it now. Is it a good filter? Any other suggestions?

Work in progress what do you think so far:
For performance, silence, and ease of priming and maintenance, I prefer the eheim classic canisters. However, they can be pricey. I have an eheim wet dry canister too, and that is surprisingly quiet. Not anywhere near as easy to service as the classic canisters, though. I have a Magnum 350 that works really well, but makes a certain amount of rattling noise. This may be due to missing gaskets, though (I have replacements for the next time I clean it) or it may be due to the bio-media I put in the carbon chamber rattling. I also am running a rena XP3, but I haven't had it long enough to evaluate it yet.
Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
