| | Eheim canister filter overkill?
I have a 10 gallon tank right now, probably going to upgrade to a 20 gallon in the forseeable future.
It's moderately planted for now, going to have an AH Supply 36 watt retrofit kit over it, DIY CO2, and dosing with ferts.
Would an Eheim 2217 be overkill for my tank? I've read about HOB filters and surface agitation with isn't good for my CO2 system, but I'm not sure if a ~$100 canister filter would be a good idea for a small tank (or even a 20 gallon).
