Recommended Can for a 25g Cube

I run Fluval FX5-6 on my larger tanks. I was curious how much flow/turnover I will need in the cube...the general 8x10 I use for cichlids? I was contemplating maybe a classic 2215 or maybe a new Eheim pro 3 2071 (might be too much?) What GPH should I be shooting for ~200? I know the classics have lower flow, but their filtering ability is awesome. I could always get another fluval. Any recommendations excluding Rena/API (not a big fan)...would be highly welcome. It is worth dropping money for quality imho. My friends have Eheim's decades old.

I use a Fluval G3 for my 25g cube. The G3 doesn't have the strongest flow so it fits the 25g perfectly (I think people use it for tanks up to 50 gallon but then I think the flow would insufficient). I use a lily pipe outflow which I think creates a gentler flow as well.

Eheim Ecco pro or pro 3 e 2074. I use an Ecco pro 35 for my 10, and a 2074 in conjunction with a magnum 350 for my 90. The 2074 is like ~ 150 GPH factory setting I believe plus comes with media.

I was considering a G3 for the sexy factor...I don't mind paying for sexy. I am curious what one would run in the chemical cartridge purigen (which I run in all my tanks) or peat...or both.
