So, for my 10 gallon, I have an internal 90 GPH. But for my 29, I would only need one with like 150 GPH? Oh, and I've always wondered, how exactly does it work? My neighbor has one below his tank in the Stand, would I have to dill a hole in the tank?

I was browsing Petco's website, and I like the Matineland C seies and the Fluval 05 Seties. Ate these good ones? I saw the Eheim, but it seemed a tad expensive. $140, yes?

No, you wouldn't have to drill it. The inlet/outlet pipe hangs on the tank, then connects to the canister below.

See link and YouTube video on right: Products

You would have to drill a hole in the back of the stand if it isn't open like mine.

It costs $100 on Amazon.com, and it comes with all the necessary media and quick disconnects (prevents water from leaking out of tubes when you disconnect hoses from canister during maintenance.

Amazon.com: Eheim ECCO External Canister Filter 2232: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Eheim ECCO External Canister Filter 2232: Pet Supplies

If you choose to get a canister (of any type) you want something rated around 30gph. Anything higher and the flow will be to great for your fish. If you decide to get another HOB filter, than you want something rated between 210-300gph.

I have also heard good things about fluval, but have no personal experiences.

Wait, only 30 gph? That's way lower than I expected.

It's actually 127gph. Sorry about that, and it's rated FOR 35gal aquariums. Believe me, that's more than enough.

I really hope I can get one, you've been very helpful :) not sure if I have the funds, though. If I do, I'll definately do a canister. If I don't, a power filter. Not sure Which one to use, though :( Fluval C seties seems way overpriced, peehaps a MatineLand Empetor, if I ont have enough money.

I do agree they are expensive. Like I said , I went through three marinland HOBs, but nothing compares to my canister.

Glade I could help out! If any more questions come to mind just throw up a post.
