Filters can be tricky- pay attention to their output. There are a few nano canisters out there that sound AWESOME until you plug it in and your tank looks like a scale model of hurricane Andrew.
On the same note, if using a spray bar on said AWESOME nano canister, remember to top off the tank regularly lest you have your mother calling you on vacation to tell you that your new filter has turned into a sprinkler system for your desk (yes, with the lap top underneath...). Apparently even with the flow subdued, it can spray very far.
Pay more for the good heater- back to "small quantities of water are less forgiving."
