Filter Question??

(this is actually Amanda's sister, VikingPrincess - I can't log in, forgot my password).

I have a question regarding filters and it is not a betta question, but I figured I would ask here. I am looking into getting fancy goldfish again, I had them years ago but back then I used a corner filter and they don't even make those anymore.

So my question is, can anyone recommend a GOOD filter that works and does not break or clog too easy.

I don't like Fluval filters. I had one for a 10 gallon a couple of years ago and it clogged and would stop working often and it drove me nuts. So anything but Fluval.

Recommendations?

If you're feeling in a DIY mood, you could build a little sump filter :)

I've never done it, but it looks simple enough...

Otherwise, everyone seems to say good things about the Eheim canister filters; I've never used one, so I can't offer any opinions of them.

Good luck :)
