The Tom's Mini, Finnex 360, and the Zoo-Med are pretty much the same size filters. I use an Eheim 2211 on my 5 gallon eco pico with the outflow turned down.

Could a person use smaller inlet / outlet pipes and just control the flow from a normal canister? Is there a model that varies in flow rate so you can use it on 6 gallons to 12 - 20 gallons?
I've thought about adding a dimmer switch to control speed of flow, but don't know if it would work with that type of motor.

Possibly even two models? It looks like, a Model "10" and a Model "15".

Looks like they sell it in Europe already for awhile.
