Eheim 2213s come with spray bars. However, they won't be long enough to cover your entire tank. You'll need to create one yourself out of rigid tubing. You can see how to do so in my thread or in the threads of others who have commented here.

Eheim intake tubes are too long/tall for this tank but they're easy to cut down with a hacksaw or Dremel.

There are so many HOB filters on the market that it's up to you to pick the one you like, really. AquaClear seems to be a favorite HOB brand here on the forum, as it's affordable and easy to modify.

Is this good enough for this tank?

Also, the pipe that came with the Eheim Canister, will that be too long?

If I don't want a Canister filter, what kid of HOB can I get?
