Recommend a 60p canister filter

My 2028 keeps having less and less flow. I have done everything I know of to try and improve it with no luck so far. Can anyone recommend a replacement for this size tank? I would prefer to overfilter as opposed to underfiltering as I have an inline CO2 reactor and an inline heater. Output and input are lily pipes. I need 17mm tubing capability.

2217 has mix diameter hoses, no? I am needing 17mm output minimum to mate to my lily pipe, hydor and reactor.

That's true it does.

I've had good luck with Rena's too.

Both of those Eheims have tubing too small for my current setup.

I have had ZERO issues with my Eheim 2217 canisters.
Buy a filter that works with your tank, not a filter that fits your tubs.

I am sure you can sell those for a decent return and get the right size tubes.

I have a renastar xp3 on my 60-p and I had to put a ball valve to reduce flow. The XP3 has both 17mmm in/outtakes. And had the cal aqua lily pipes on it. Now I have borneowild SS jet pipes and had to turn it down even more haha.

And the eheim 2217 on my 20L which is very nice but the it does have miss match sizes 13 outtake and 16mm intake.

Where can I find for 200? Checked amazon and it's 290 plus almost every review there says it leaks from the top due to a design flaw.

Get the classic style, it is so much better. Look at filter volume/canister volume/efficiency.

All arrows point to the classic series, they are work horses and will run forever.

I am really not too interested on taking a loss reselling all my inline equipment at this point. Thanks again for the recommendation, however.
