I need two canister filters for my 180 gallon, since it is drilled with two overflows, and I need a canister for each overflow. I have been leaning towards getting two Eheim 2217s, but I'm a bit worried they won't be powerful enough. Each canister is rated to 159 gallons, but I heard that two still might not be powerful enough for a 180. I'm just planning on having one Jardini Arowana in the tank. Thoughts?

Like I said, I need two canisters, and two FX6s would be overkill, and too expensive.

Cool, but the tank is drilled with two overflows, so I need two canister filters since I don't want a sump.

Not the biggest fan of SunSun canister filters, I've had them before and they didn't seem to be built all that well, but I'll take another look at those.
