The Tom's Mini, Finnex 360, and the Zoo-Med are pretty much the same size filters. I use an Eheim 2211 on my 5 gallon eco pico with the outflow turned down.

I've thought about adding a dimmer switch to control speed of flow, but don't know if it would work with that type of motor.

RAOK Club and BBRR Club! My thinking has been invert-ed!

Possibly even two models? It looks like, a Model "10" and a Model "15".

More info

Looks like they sell it in Europe already for awhile.
