Eheim Wet/Dry

So, does anyone have any experience or opinions on Eheim's Wet/Dry 2227 Filter? Or, is it overkill for a primarily fish aquar. with a DSB?

What size tank?

What is in the tank in the way of fish and inverts?

Do you have Live rock? If so how much do you belive you have in the way of lbs?

How deep is your sand bed?

No live rock yet. Tank still under construction.

I have no personal experience with the product in question, but Ehiem makes an excellent product. I think if you have a dsb and at least 1 lb of LR per gallon, you shouldn't need it, with light stocking levels and use of a skimmer. If you plan to feed heavily or keep predators or max out the stocking capacity of the tank, then yes I would use it and it's not overkill.
