Eheim 2215 filter suitable for 200 litre tank?

Recommended Posts

Definitely suitable! My friend runs a 2215 for a 450 litre tank fully stocked with African cichlids.

I run a 2213 on a 174 litre tank with no issues over the last decade and I keep African cichlids as well.

Good luck!

Thanks guys.

I've been to other aquarium forums, and people have been saying I need 5 to 10 times the flow rate for my filter. And suggested an Eheim 2217 would barely be enough filtration for my 200 litre tank....

Makes me think how over the top things are getting.

Been running the 2213 on my 174 litre tank for well over 10 years without filtration issues OR flowrate issues.

Will be doing a new set-up and have a multitude of sump system questions! Here's a few of them:

Is it possible to "over filtrate"?

Like how big can I go with a sump system for a 450 litre tank?

Considering a tank with these dimensions.. 122cm X 61cm X 61cm

Is it basically the bigger I can fit under there the better?

I don't want to take this post over so can someone show me where I can find answers for people setting up a sump system for the first time?
