Default AM Reactor 1000 on a eheim 2211?

I have a 10 gallon rimless with a ADA diffusor. I would like to use an inline AM reactor 1000 with my eheim 2211.

I am interested in what everyone thinks about that idea and if you had any suggestions. Thanks in advance!

The flow from the Eheim 2211 would be too slow to run the AM1000 effectively. I've tried it before and bubbles would collect in the reactor.

Go with a 2213, IMO the 2211 is too weak for a 10g by itself moreless restricted with the reactor.

Thanks alot for the suggestions and information. I kinda thought it was a long shot.

eklikewhoa.. That is a great idea. Do you think I can use the Eheim 2213 and connect a hydor inline heater and the reactor?

The smallest eheim to give you enough flow is a 2217. Bad thing is the 2217 will be to much flow for a 10gal.

The "suggested" flow rates is bs.....if you plan to run the hydor and reactor spring for the 2215.
