At that price range check out the mini stainless steel regulator from greenleafaquariums.
In my experience GLA regulators are great, plus you'll get great post sale support from them.

I have multiple 2215 running 2217 impellers for a couple of years now. No issue. Another added benefit in your case is that you can keep your pipes (2217 uses 17mm inflow)

Since you already have a 2215, another option is to buy a 2217 impeller and swap it out. That way you'll get the 2217 flow with just less media capacity.
Good luck.

I usually run an airstone in the bucket when bleaching, try to position the airstone underneath the purigen bags so that all the purigen beads come in contact with the bleach.

I have kept the following tetras: Cardinals, RummyNose, Neon, Black, Gold, Green Neon, Serpae, Redeye.

Wow AZ,

That is a nice tank. The fixture doesn't look bad either. How many switches does it have? The pic on Ebay shows 4, but the description says 2.

Ant,

Thanks for the pointer.

Tom,
