With the valves, you can reduce the flow. I've got a 2217 running in a 29 without problem. Of course, if you are also running a AC 70, a 2215 would be fine.

I have a bunch of Eheim canisters, and like them a lot. I have three 2213s and I'd recommend that over a 2211 on a 20 gallon tank. A 2211 won't have a lot of flow and will get filled up with sludge...

You didn't move to the Southern Hemisphere, did you? Seriously, I have to believe the tubes are reversed. Sounds like something I'd do.

I don't think the SunSun/Aquatops are hard to clean, but it can be hard finding replacement parts. I prefer Eheims, but especially if you can find one used for a bargain, but the SunSuns are a good...

I'd guess that roots may actually be durable and better for use in an aquarium. Give it a try.

You should tell the LFS how long a drive you have, so that the staff can bag the fish appropriately. I agree that under normal conditions you should be fine, but if you're buying more than 1 fish,...

I've never used an Eheim 2071, but I have used the Classic line, a 2034, a 2028, and a 2227. I tend to buy foam in bulk (in different PPIs) and cut it to fit my filters. I don't worry about a fine...

Another vote for the Eheim 2213. I have one on a tank next to my wife's desk and she hates irritating noises. No complaints from her.

Should work. You might look at a video of the Cobalt canister filter, which uses a similar design, with an external pump powering everything.

I suggest the Cobalt EXT canister filter. You can get it for about $100. Super quietNd very easy to maintain. I just got one two weeks ago and am very happy. I'm a long time Eheim user, too.

I've bought o-rings for the Eheim valves at my local hardware store. I've used silicone grease, too.

I slip a sponge over the intake and clean it every week or two.
