You fool! Make sure to specify WHICH canisters you are talking about lol. Eheim makes more than 1 model you know :PFoshizzle.

CRAP. Whatever, just brandwise matters, not model.

And you aren't taking into consideration cost either
If you are just asking for the best company, irregardless of other factors, then Eheim wins hands down.Foshizzle.

I think he's just asking which we would recommend. I would recommend none for a 20 gallon. However, for a large tank, Fluval or Eheim.
I would however have listed a good HOB and not limit the choice to Aqua Clear. Penquins or Emperors both good job jobs but Emperors are just a bit enough too large and probably will not fit correctly into the hood cut-out. I ended up buying a glass top just so I could cut the opening larger.

If cost is not a concern then....
for water polishing
In all honesty though, many people over at plantedtank.net use Eheim classics for their 20g tanks, since planted tanks tend to get cloudier than non planted tanks for some reason. The fact that it's a canister also means you'll have more stable CO2 levels, and more importantly means that you can make an in-line CO2 reactor, which is much quieter and more efficient than anything you can do with a HOB.Foshizzle.
