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.

Once I hit 20 gallons I feel like a real aquarium stand is needed. Even if the structure will support it there could be uneven pressure on the bottom of the aquarium.

Sunsuns (and the many rebrands they use) are pretty great. Very cheap and works well. Its too bad most of them are higher flow so they don't compete against eheim for smaller nano tanks.
