 @jabba  :  your  right  the  flow  rate  is  10  to  11  times...But  the  Atman  is  just  a  powerhead  and  Eheim  is  the  one  acting  as  filtration  right  ?  So  the  powerhead  is  just  creating  extra  turbulence  ;  the  filtration  is  still  fixed  at  rated  volume  of  Eheim...  Pls  correct  me  if  my  understanding  is  wrong...

 filtration  depends  on  canister  volume  and  not  flow  rate.
 The  2217  is  fine,  no  need  for  the  powerhead  IMO

 Hi  All,  
                In  my  opinion  filtration  All  depends  on  the  type  of  plants  and  the  Fishes  you  keep  and  type  of  the  Landscape  (whether  it's  with  minimal  planted  setup  or  heavily  planted  tank  like  Dutch  style)  and  more  importantly  the  size  of  the  Tank.
 
   So  please  upload  a  picture  of  your  Tank,  So  that  the  experts  can  give  some  advise.
 
 Thank  you,
 Regards,
 Muneer  Ahmed  Kabir,
