I would actually take a Eheim 2213 or even a 2211 over a Zoo Med, even though I like mine. I should have stated in my post. I would probably choose a 2213 due to tubing size (I think it's 12/16) which will allow you to keep things like any inline equipment or lily pipes if you upgrade to a 2215 or many of the Ecco's.

I actually tried a 2234 on my 6 gallon which is way to big. Throttled down most of the way, it could have actually worked. Just didn't fit my stand.
