May need another filter

Well the 29gal is up and running with the good ole workhorse Eheim 2213 at the helm of the SS Filtration. But, Im getting very little movement from my plants (Wisteria thus far, still cycling). Currently I just have a Hydor inline heater attached.

Im just wondering if I should get another 2213, run an HOB (Aquaclear) or throw a powerhead in there? If so Ive never really dealt with powerheads so if you all have an suggestions I would be most obliged.

I plan on running an in tank reactor so Im not worried about that being in-line

Have you cleaned the filter/hoses etc and changed the filter pads?

I just set up the tank. The filter has been running for 3 days.

A 2213 should be just fine with a 29g tank.
