Eheim 2026 or 2222

For my current 29gal recently planted tank, I think this is heavily stocked:

16 Neons
3 Rosey Barbs
1 Guppy
1 Cherry Barb
2 Panda Corys
1 Peppered Cory
2 SAE
1 Flying Fox
1 Singapore/Wood Shrimp
2 Amano/Japonica Shrimp

I only have 1 Penguin HOT w/bio-wheel filter running. Been doing weekly partial changes to handle the bio-load. Now after a couple of weeks of converting the tank to a planted tank, I'm seriously considering adding on a cannsiter filter. I am sold on Eheim's craftmanship and reliability and I've also read many posts from a supportive Rena Filster group on this forum. But here's what it boils down to my final choices:

Eheim 2222: $109.99 at Big Al's, link:

OR
Eheim 2026: $164.99 at Big Al's, link:
http://www.bigalsonline.com/catalog/...d1=2885;pcid2=


So I am wondering for the extra $55, is it worth for a little extra flow-rate for just a 29 gal tank? I keep reading that "over" filtration is good, but I also don't want to go overboard. Any opinions?

The 2026 kit also comes with an upgraded install kit which IMO looks better than the stock kit. (ie not green )
