ASM G1 or better. The ASM mini is plastic and can't be modded and the G1 is only a little bigger and a little more money. It'll fit in your sump and still be a bigger bang for your buck. There's a lot of cool mods you can see on their website and on the ASM thread.

Don't be fooled when they say it'll over skim. I'll be using a G3 on my nano.

If money is a concern, you can go with the Odyssea PS 75 or PS 160. There are a couple of simple mods that will increase its effeciency, plus the 75 is about $40 can't beat that.

Btw, I have an ASM mini and I am very pleased with it. I would like to get a sedra pump for it in the future, don't have $80 to burn yet
