Thinking about Cerges reactor for a 10 gallon tank

What would be a good canister filter to use? Was thinking about the Eheim 2213, but is it's ~116 gallon/hour flow sufficient, or will running through the reactor slow down flow too much?

Im using the classic 150 and love how small and silent it is. I have the tank in my office and no one can hear it.

If it aint broke dont fix it.

Sweet! Thanks for the info, looking like the 2213 (or even 2211) will work. One question, does the reactor completely dissolve the CO2?

Yes it will dissolve the co2 completely without seeing any bubbles if built correctly.

If it aint broke dont fix it.

Go 2213, and yes, the Cerges will slow that down just a bit.

I personally think a Griggs has better flow, but then you need to have the space for it. If you do have room for something like a 1.5" x 16" pipe, then a Griggs reactor would be a good option (and cheaper).
