I have a 27 gallon tank I'd like to put a canister on, and I currently have a HOT magnum on it, but would like to put something better.

I would also like to put the canister next to the tank if I can. Does an Eheim 2213 have to have a minimum distance between the top of the filter and the waterline? (some filters do need to be below by a certain amount, I noticed my Filstar balked when it didn't have enough distance below one tank).

There are some great deals right now on both the XP1 and the 2213, but I want to see if I can actually put either next to the tank. I know that the XP1's inlet is on top while the 2213's is on the bottom.
