A canister filter question

I found this place in Austin Texas (where i live) that sells a Eheim 2213 for $67.95... You think that this will be strong enough for a 45 gallon breeder tank? or even a regular 55 gallon?

I do have a 20gal hob laying around but i want to use it for a 15gal QT tank... but if the ehiem isnt powerful enough, would those 2 twerkin it together work on a 45 breeder or 55 reg?

I think it would depend on the load in the tank. If you have large fish and or heavy eaters, then it may not be enough. http://www.eheim.com/ That website says that it should be good for 250L. I found a site that says 250L is 65 gallons. http://www.nomoreodor.com/../liters_...conversion.htm
So according to that I think it would be enough. I think the price is right. this site sells 'em for $76 http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...768+2147088522

If you end up buying one online.... I recommend WWW.bigalsonline.com!!
What a wonderful website and great prices (shipping is really low too!!)
I bought a Eheim 2026 for my 50 gallon Turtle/Goldfish/apple snail tank and I love it!!! I have a huge bio-load with the inhabitants in this tank, but the filter is awesome!!! and super quiet too. Can't go wrong with an Eheim!!! Good luck!!
Aquarium Advice.Com ROCKS!!!!

I agree w,hollieo,
Bigalsonline.com has the best prices so far that I have seen.
Except for fake plants
