I am currently in the process of setting up my first planted tank. It is a 29 gallon system that will have Malaysian Driftwood and will be moderately planted. I have a Marineland Penguin 350B that is a few months old(wasn't used much and then I put into storage)

However, I am considering a EHEIM 2215. I have used Fluval Canisters in the past. Would the 2215 be enough for this setup? Could I just use my existing penguin? I have read good/bad things about EHEIM but most are positive.

Yeah I use a 2213 on my 10g and it's basically just perfect, while still remaining in the "slightly-overfiltered" category. So I think a 2215 on a 29g would be perfect.

Or, an XP2 for that matter (I've decided I'm more of a Filstar guy now, and will probably not be buying any more Eheims, but that is only because Filstars are waaaaaaaay easier to clean and perform maintenance on, and I'm lazy).

Thanks for all the information. I am glad to see that there are people using this system with success. I have ordered the 2215 and will start my tank build next week once everything arrives. :icon_smil
