Will a 2217 low tech work on a 55 gallon with 5 discus and 20 cardinal tetras heavy planted? I thought that with the 264 gph hour rating.(at least 200 real world?) I would be good, I am doing 10% changes weekly. I have been reading that some are using 2 of these filters.

It would "work." It's just that two would work better. I have two on my 58-gallon heavily planted tank. But, don't hesitate to start out with the one. If you feel it's needed in your application, you can add another one some other time.

I have 2 on my 55g. Get rid of the crappy spray bar and out take and replace with the modular Eheim installation kits.

Don't know. You might want to do a search and see what comes up.
