Filter suggestions please!

I have a 26 gallon tank that I need a new filter for.
I really have never looked into them or anything, I have always just used the ones that came with my tanks. I do want something that is rated for atleast a little bit higher flow than my tank is and Adjustable would be good too. I have a limited income so $40 is the max I am willing to spend. Cheaper is better as long as its good quality.
Suggestions please?

I have consider these before. They are adjustable and in your price range. They have decent reviews too. I wanted to make hang on planters out of them. Don't know how quiet they are though.

If you can afford it "AquaClear 50"
AquaClear 50 - 200 GPH under $30.

That aqua clear one looks pretty good to me.
Hoping I can get more suggestions to compare though.

I've always been a fan of sponge filters. Low current, large volume for nitrifying bacteria colony, aeration for the bacteria, quiet if you get the right pump, maintenence-free.

For HOB or submerged filters, anything with the motor submerged is quieter than having the motor outside.

Thanks. I am a fan of sponge filters too, I have them in every tank I have, but I want a more powerful one for this tank because The one in it didnt seem to be doing a very good job.

i have an aqueon, it's quiet. tetra whispers are ok. doesn't hold as much as aqua clear though,probably your best bet. i'm actively looking for a hob. the one i'm gonna try next is the new aquatop, it has a self adjusting surface skimmer,customizable filter media and a uv sterilizer for $60.it's half price right now.
