So I kept the Ray 2.
I have the Amazonia in and it's still dirty, did a few water changes, need to do a few more. I'm still not getting any Nitrifying bacteria growth even with seeding which is weird... need to check PH or something I guess. Same water worked fine in other FW tanks so I assume it must be the substrate.
The 2217 is indeed super heavy flow, it's blowing my substrate off the walls. I'm reducing flow heavily with the Eheim quick disconnects. Go with a 2215. 2217 was probably a mistake.
