If it's for a piranha tank, try finding a filter (or multiple filters with a combined flow rate) that runs no less than 300gph, and the higher flow rate, the better!
As for brands: it depends on your budget, but if you have the money, I recommend Eheim (they're rather expensive, though).

You might as well put up a poll for this question, everyone has their own preferances, Personally I go for undergravel filters, and I am using hagen powerheads.
But you will get so many answers on what the best is, when it doesn't really matter anyway.
Whatever filter you choose will find be suitable, as long as you do regular water changes, likewise if you don't do water changes you will never find a filter that is good enough.
I suggest you go by price.

Xenon I will agree, try to do maintainence on those turds,

Scientifically wet drys are superior, they have vast amounts of surface area to host bacteria on and therefore far out perform all others, they can be fairly cheap if you buy the media on ebay or big als, and then make your own sump and siphon box

When I first started with my 55g, I had to keep a tight budget and go the cheapest way. I had an UGF with the help of 2 tubes and airstones, 24" bubble wand, and a Magnum 350. This wasnt the best set up to begin my P's with but after numerous water change, cleaning, and the help of PF advisors.. they've grown from dime size to 4" in 4 months and now living with a much better set up in a 100g.
