I have a 65 gallon planted tank with redsea c02 which Canister filter should I get:

Eheim 2215 rated for tanks 66-96 gallon with 164gph

or

Eheim 2217 rated for tanks up to 159 gallon with 264gph


THank you so much for helping me pick, Canister filters are very new to me.

Hmm. Apparently moderators didn't find "flux capasitor" as funny as I did.

Seriously though, what's the overall advantages of a co2 canister filter over a convetional bio wheel filter?

Well I can't answer the biowheel question but I can say I want a canister to take the filter off the back of the tank.

my personal motto is to overfilter as much as you can get away with! I personally would go with the 2217, I have a 2215 and an ecco 2232 on my discus tank, and they don't really seem to move as much water as you'd think. go with the bigger one.

Does anyone use the Eheims with the built in heater? Does it really heat well enough to not need an additional heater? I can't decide between spending the money on an Eheim with a heater or saving $$ and getting a Rena-- ugh.
