If you choose a hang on back filter, you will need to fill your tank the whole way. I have the Aquaclear 50, it got great reviews and I like it.

You could ask about the tetra filter in the accessories sub-forum.

well last night when i went to put charlie to bed i noticed a sizable chunk missing from his tail, i thought he had bitten it off. it was too late at night for me to do anything about it so a snapped a few picture and then put him to bed intending on dealing with it in the morning. this morning i woke up, went pee and then went to charlies tank and started really assessing the situation. theres no black on his tail so no fin rot (yay!!!) and doesn't look any worse than last night. although last week or the week before he had split his tail. but i also noticed the thread holding his hammock together had literally disintegrated in parts so i don't know if his tail got stuck on the hammock and ripped, or if he bit it. i'm not going to give him any meds (yet) and just want to use clean water to get him all healed up. but doing a 100% water change without a siphon on a 45gal tank everyday is just.... no. so i moved him to his 1gal critter keeper. and moved him back to the window he was originally housed in. i think hes pretty bummed at the less space but i really think he enjoys being next to me all day again. so i have sort of been thinking about getting a 10 or 15gal tank and keeping him there on my window again. but i don't know. i'll see how he is when hes all healed up.
