May I ask why you think your Whisper sucks? I use one on a 10 gallon and it does a great job.

Otherwise, I agree, one of the smaller AC's would do a good job.

It seems to me a canister on a 10 gallon would be big time overkill. It's so quick to do water changes on something that small that there shouldn't be much left for a filter to do - unless it's really over stocked with fish.

Canister would be nice if you're injecting CO2, though. The HOBs always outgas about half what you put in, without some modification of the return or really strict monitoring of the water level to minimize turbulence.

They don't require much maintenance, either.

Good point. I always keep my water levels way up, but if you aren't able to it could be more of a snag.

The maintenance part on the canisters is a very big plus. :)

A Penquin Mini would work well, if you are injecting C02 just keep the flow rate turned down and the water level up.
