Questions on Eheim classic canister models

1043 4
I've been pouring over retail sites and forums and I've seen conflicting comments comparing the Eheim 2211 vs 2213. I was hoping someone here with experience with them can help.

My main questions:
1. Does the 2211 come with doubletap connectors? I keep finding conflicting comments about this.

2. Would the 2211 have enough flow/power to use an in-line heater?

3. Would the 2213 be way too much for a 7 gallon 12" cube? Would using a valve on the return hose to limit the flow rate cause additional strain or wear to the pump?

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the replies. Glad to hear the 2211 come with the doubletaps.

That's a nice looking scape shaman! I'm planning on doing a DIY inline heater as well so it's good to see one in use.
