Discus seem amazing but the work associated is a little extreme unless you plumb the tank for easy water changes. Discus look like they take more effort than a reef and thats saying something.

Not sure about that Ikea model but I use an Ikea besta as my stand for a ~11 gallon tank. Very sturdy no problems. Alot of people use them for the 17g ADA 60p style tanks as well.

I think a 2213 would be ok on a 60p. I have one on a tank with the same dimensions as a 45p and I think its perfect. If you are going with the 2213 I would probably get a jet pipe.
