65Liters tank- need suggestion about canister filter capacity

What should be the ideal capacity of a canister filter in terms L/H for a 65 liters tank? Please can anyone suggest me?

You want 8-10x turn over per hour with media. So something around the 800lph mark will work fine. Or u can go bigger and just adjust the flow speed

Also keep in mind that many of the published LPH are for a canister that isn't packed with media. So a bit more makes up for the reduction.

You can also do 5x turnover rate, and supplement the rest of the flow with a circulation pump.
