Recommendations?

As of now, I have a 5 gallon, (soon to be upgraded to 10g) and I have a god awful Tetra whisper internal filter. I've had it for about 2 years at this point, but I've had to replace it before. It does a terrible job, no matter how new/old it is, and I would really like to get a reliable filter. Maybe one with an adjustable flow since baffling is a bit of a pain...but whatever is the best one for the money.

Do you guys have any recommendations as far as a nice filter goes?

Thanks for any replies!

Would it still be suitable for when I switch to a 10 gallon? Or is it only good for the smaller tanks?

No I would just keep it on the smaller tank, though if you were going to divide the 10 I would put one on each side.

For a single filter on a 10 I would do an AC20. Has an adjustable flow and a lot of room for media. Sponge filters are often recommended. Personally I hate the sound of the air pump, the look of the bubbles, and I don't like filters taking up precious space in the tank. While not my favorite, certainly a viable option.
