I think the 2213 is a good choice.
I have a 2213 running on a 10g that contains a rock, a large clump of Java moss, and about 100 half-inch Nimbochromis fuscotaeniatus fry. I have the spray bar pointed against the back glass and that helps diffuse the strength of the flow. Though they weren't getting blown around when I had it pointed normally.
I also have drilled the holes bigger, and made more holes on my 2217 spraybar to reduce the flow strength in my 55g.
As a side note/question, I have an Eheim oxygen diffuser on the output of one of my 2217's on my 125g mbuna tank (for increased circulation/aeration), would anyone know if it would help to increase dissolved CO2 in my low-tech 55? Flourite substrate w/ Seachem root tabs, single 48" flourescent strip light fixture modded with electronic ballast overdriving 4x a Philips F32T8/TL850, very occasional dosing of Flourish & Flourish trace, been dosing Excel regularly due to BBA outbreak (which is clearing up).
