If you are still going to have trouble getting the filter restarted.(A couple of hours?),I wouldn't reccomend buying another one.You want to have the filter up and running in a shorter amount of time to preserve the bacteria that keep the water fish-safe.Any filter that allows for circulation,offers sufficient substrate for bacterial colonization,and aerates the water will do the job.A hang on the back power filter is cheap,while a canister filter offers versatility.If in the future you want to add peat moss,phos-zorb,calcerous material etc.the canister filter offers that option.
