hisxlency is Amazon the best price going?

MChambers I'd also recommend the 2213 Classic for a 20 gallon tank.

Yes, that's right, I think it's called the eheim classic 250.

My 2217 was fine on a 29G with the flow partially reduced by the connector valve.

exv152 I would probably go with the 2213. The 2215 or 17 are probably too much flow.

Re: Filter Question

I have an eheim ecco 2232 for my 20 gallon long. Itstmy first canister filter and i wouldnt want anything else. It's super easy to prime, which seems to be a problem with other canister filters. The flow has slowed down, but cleaning it usually fixes that.

exv152 I have had both fluval and eheim canisters, and I recommend eheim. You get what you pay for here.

CrypticLifeStyle Most canisters are quiet really, eheims are worth every penny. Any local shops around that run any? Sometimes a good way to hear a established one going.
