    Right know I have a tetra filter but I'm getting another tank what would you recommend for a cheap reliable filter for a twenty gallon.

    A lot of members recommend SunSun/Aquatop. Aquatop is supposed to be better made, and a little more expensive than SunSun.
    I don't believe in going cheap with certain epupment, and filters being one of them.
    If you don't want a canister, many members recommend Aquaclear hob's (hang on back).
    I don't like hobs, so I will let others give you advice on which is the best to get.

    If you are talking about a chiller, I would check out Amazon, or Ebay.

    It all depends on your situation, I am s big fan of Aquaclear hob filters they're relatively cheaper than canisters but still have a lot of room for media and are easily customized.

    I also have a Fluval 306 canister that I got so I could add pressurized co2 later. I like it and have had no problems with it either. However canisters are more expensive.

    I agree with BluMan that I don't want to go cheap on filters, but many go with other brands. My lfs has Fluvals and spare parts so it wasn't a difficult choice for me. For the most bang for your buck I would recommend Aquaclears.

    Get a clip on fan. If your on a budget a chiller will give you sticker shock!

    Aquatop is made by sunsun, All Aquatops have the same flow rates, tubes and housing as sunsun.
