Cant decide on a filter


So i just set up a 6 gallon. Im going with dsm. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...097&highlight=

It gives me time to get everything else i need, Im having a hard time deciding on a filter. I was going to just go with zoo med but i guess they have to be at tank level, and i really dont want to have the filter showing. Trying to keep it very clean looking. Would an eheim 2211 be overkill for this tank? What other options do i have for small reliable canister filters?

If it helps, I have a 2213 on a 5g and its fine. You can dial down the flow of the output to suit your needs. The thing you may not like is the green hoses. You can paint them black or get some glass lilly pipes.
