Eheim is great, but expensive. I bought a Rena Filstar online. It works VERY well. I haven't had a problem with it since I got it. No complaints!

Not necessarily, as long as you baffle the output as to not cause a current.

most externals come with spray bars so that buffers everything alot, i have a 1200lph canister which doesnt make much current with the spray bar, i have it pointed back at the glass facing upwards a bit.
