Prices and shipping costs are low at this place

This is the next best place as far as shipping goes, I have everything sent with parcel post and it actually gets here quickly.

I got some sweet deals on eheims from ebay but you have to be patient and have time to snipe people

definitely getting a filter this weekend. deciding between eheim 2211 or eheim 2213 for my 20G tank. i know 2211 has been discontinued (so parts for repair/replacement would be hard) but the output (flow) of the 2213 is too strong. what do you guys suggest i get? any way to reduce flow if i go with the 2213?

In my opinion, 116gph is not a lot of flow for a 20 gallon tank(that rating is without any media in the filter). I have one with slightly restricted flow on an ADA 30c and it's just right with all the plants and driftwood that's in there eventhough it sits right next to the tank. My 2 20 long aquariums have an eheim 2222 and a 2224 and I would have to say that I should've gotten a second 2224 instead of a 2222. If you still decide to get the 2213 it comes with 2 quick release valves to restrict the flow on the output side. Depending on what kind of media you put in your filter and what kind of bioload/plantload you have in your tank, I would go with the 2215 or a 2224(the baskets are really helpful when cleaning).

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).
