Eheim Canister filters?

http://tinyurl.com/5yfdg Would that one be sufficient for a 20-29G tank?(Not sure which size tank I'm getting yet, but it'll be a smaller one.) I heard that Eheim is a very good brand, but I'd like to stay away from their 200$ Filters, mainly because I'm only having a smaller tank. Any input?

what kind of tank is it going to be, FO or reef? Do you plan on LR? How much
If so then you might want to look into a HOB skimmer and a few small power heads instead. There are several ways to go about setting it up all depends on what you plan to do with the tank. Give us a run down on what you want to do.

I've got an ECCO 2235 and I think if you do go with a canister, you should get an ecco, as it is self priming
