 For  my  35Gallon  semi  planted  discus  tank,  am  using  Dolphin  C1000.  I  had  been  using  this  for  past  three  years.  And  spare  parts  are  available  in  an  LFS  in  MG  Road.  So  if  anything  goes  wrong,  I  can  get  it  from  the  lfs.  It  has  four  buckets  and  when  you  buy  the  filter,  you  can  a  bag  of  activated  carbon  along  with  the  pack.
 
 I  have  fine  cotton  wool  sponge  (in  the  bottom  most  bucket)  >  black  sponge  >  ceramic  rings  >  ceramic  rings  (top  most  bucket)  as  the  media.

 Abhi  for  28  gallon  tank  2211  will  be  enough,  you  can  go  for  2213,  because  it  comes  with  isolation  taps  and  makes  maintenance  easy.

 Abhida,
 Dolphin  C1600,  Aquanic  A1000  and  Eheim  2217  are  all  there  in  my  armory  but  now  I  sincerely  wish  I  had  two  2217s  instead  of  wasting  money  on  the  Chinese  ones.The  Aquanic  is  definitely  better  than  the  Dolphin  (as  a  matter  of  fact  I  believe  that  they  have  come  up  with  a  fake  of  the  Chinese  ones  as  well-  Dophin  Doh  )!
 Go  for  Eheim  and  you  will  never  repent!
 
 However,  I  have  always  maintained  that  you  should  concentrate  more  on  a  chiller  than  a  canister!
 Temporary  arrangements  for  a  spare  canister  can  be  made  easily  be  made  as  I  have  a  couple  of  them  lying  idle  at  home.  Smile

 No  chiller  +  canister  I  have  heard  of.  Go  for  a  next  larger  chiller  size  than  the  capacity  indicated.
 I  know  one  fellow  who  bought  an  exact  size  chiller  for  his  tank  and  when  he  did  water  changes  in  summer,
 the  chiller  worked  non  stop  for  5  days.
 
 Then  chiller  off,  no  that  didn't  work,  plants  suffered  immediately,  so  stop  water  changes,  and  tank  is  a  mess.
 Even  after  buying  a  chiller  his  tanks  look  good  only  in  winter  !   ROFL

 Buy  a  small  refrigerator,  which  will  serve  as  a  cabinet  for  your  tank.Make  two  holes  through  the  rear  walls  for  the  canister  inlet  and  outlet  pipes  to  pass  through.Keep  your  canister  in  the  refrigerator  and  there  you  go......Chilled  canister  plus  aquarium  cabinet!
 Just  kidding!
 Forget  the  canister.I  will  give  you  one!
 Buy  a  chiller.
