Canister for ADA 45-P
I have a new 45-P which is roughly 10 gallons, 18in x 10.5 x 12. Which canister would you recommend for it. I was thinking an Eheim 2213. Would that be enough for the tank. I know some people tend to over filter. I plan on using lily pipes and aquasoil, which is light, and I didn't want too much flow so that aquasoil is being moved or fish being blown around hard. So if that isn't good enough, should I do the 2215? Or anything else good for the same price range.

I don't think the Aqua Soil will be blown around by the 2215. I'm actually planning a build with the 45-P myself, and I was planning on the 2215. My thought was that it's not much more expensive but I could always use it on a larger tank in the future if I want.

2213 should be fine, 2215 you would probably need to turn down the flow.

Yeah I keep thinking the 2213 might be the way to go since it is only 10 gallons

I'm still stuck on buying either 2213 or 2215. I've dry started the tank but need a canister soon because I'm going to flood it eventually. Anyone have a tank about this size and have experience with using either one of these currently?

2213 is what i use on my standard 10 gallon.

2213 is the way to go. I have it on my ebi and have to point it back at the glass. 2215 you'd have to drill out the spray bar and probably still have to throttle the flow.

Canister for ADA 45-P
I use a 2213 on my 10 gallon at full blast and its not too much for the fish. You could always consider the 2215 and the lily pipe spin

Yeah I've been torn between the two. 2213 seems like it should be good enough though since 116 max gph so that is still over x10 turnover rate. My co2 I'm thinking will be with ceramic diffuser. My main worry is that if I decided to change to an inline reactor later on, would the 2213 still be good enough.
