Its either going to be an Eheim classic 2213 or a Eheim ecco 2231
i can get either one for the same price, so its the filter that im unsure what to get.

Doing my research the classic has been around and is known to be quiet and problem free. The ecco is easy to clean/prime.

So what one should i pull the gun on? thanks!

Ecco gets slightly higher points for the multple baskets. Looses some of that for the lesser volume (?).

What is media volume of each?
