No I haven't really made up my mind. Sorry if I gave that impression. Everything I have read is that the eheim is a great filter. I am willing to keep working with it if it is going to work for this tank. Not really looking for a huge increase in the flow rate, unless needed, here but more a good sustained rate. I have at this time 8 small angels, 2 pearl gouramis, 1 dwarf gourami, 6 pearl danios, 1 betta, 3 serpae tetras, 1 3" black ghost, 6 corys, 2 ottos, 2 upside down cats, 2 mystery snails and 4 nerite snails. There is a number of Amazon swords, crypts, anubias, vals, ludwigia, java ferns, java moss and chain swords growing in the tank. There is also a bubble wand across the back of the tank for additional aeration. There is a large piece of driftwood and some misc rocks in it too.
Thanks for your help!

What fish are in the tank? If it were me I would stick with the ehiem, but it sounds to me like you may have already made up your mind.
