Sunsun canister filter

Hi,

I have a 36 gallon planted tank with tetras and ghost shrimp I currently have a fluval 204 that's is 170 gph canister filter and I want to upgrade to a Sunsun canister filter that has 245 gph or something like that is that to much for a 36 gallon and will it suck up the shrimp or fish? Thanks!

The 265 GPH model will do very well.

Should be fine, just add some sponge on intake so it cant suck up the shrimp (though I dont think it will). I am all about over filtering my tanks because I like knowing they are clean and have plenty of oxygen.

It'll be more like a downgrade lol sunsun is a pretty good canister filter if you are on low budget
