Need help to buy a filter

Hi all,

Planning to start one new tank, size 60cmX30cmX36cm. Volume 64.8 liters without any substrate and all. Want to go for Eheim Classic filters with Bio Rio as media. But confused between Classic 2213 and 2215. According to the company website 2213 (even 2211) is sufficient for my tank size, with 400 l/hr, and 1.5 m head. But the local dealer is saying that 2213 will have a reduced flow rate once the media will clog, so he asks me to go for 2215, with 620 l/hr and 1.8 m head. But 2215 will cost me 1.1k more. And really do not want to spend more money if 2213 is gonna serve the purpose.

Please HELP!!!

Saw your post on the Eheim Review thread. Do go with the 2213 as that is adequate for your size tank. A powerhead or a koralia nano will fix your flow/circulation problem if needed. All depends on your scaping and setup for the tank.

There are other factors that will reduce the flow of a canister filter and not just to the eheim brand. Filter floss, sponges, inline equipment, tubes are dirty etc. This is when you have to clean out the canister.
