Eheim 2213

im looking to buy one of these next week. can i have your opinions please?
i have a 110litre tank and i was hoping to put it underneath my fish tank in my cabinet. Does it operate sufficiently underneath the tank?

I use a eheim compact 2000 on my 40b and I love it. Powerful and whisper quiet. Great pumps

the 2213 goes up to 200litre. my tank is 110litres. someone mentioned that over time it will slow down. and that i should go for the 2215.
what do you guys think?

My 2217 didn't fit in my cabinet made for a juwel. I think the classics are quite bulky.

Better to go with 2215 or 2217 (specially if your tank is overstocked or planted).

Don't trust to "official" filtration info. Normally you can split it a half. So up to 200L become up to 100L very lightly stocked with no plants...
