Question Fluval "Flora" vs. "EBI"

I'm going to order on of these tanks, and I was wondering what the community input is on them and how they compare to one another.

I'm hoping to keep a community of Amano Shrimp, and either neon or cardinal tetras or harlequin rasboras.

Not sure if you've searched the forum but there are several threads comparing and contrasting the two two tanks. Some of them are quite recent. Should help you quite a bit.

The consensus seems to be that it's best to go with the Ebi and if you want CO2, use a full-size system. The CO2 system with the Flora ends up costing waaaay too much to be of any benefit.

Cardinals/Neos probably won't be a good fit for the tank, as there's very little swimming room. Smaller Rasboras could work.

Thanks, and I did search the forum but all of what I found was about one or the other. No direct comparison, and thats kind of what I'm looking for.
