Default Eheim vs. Aquaclear?

I'm thinking about setting up another planted aquarium: 28 gallon. I've had
great success with water clarity and speed of filteration with the Aquaclear
series of filters for about 10 or so aquariums that I've had. Right now I
have an aquaclear with a 15 gallon with C02 pumped into the intake pipe. I
want to simularly pump C02 into my 28 gallon. I've heard lots about the
goodness of Eheim canister filters and I'm wondering if I should convert or
stay with good experiences with Aquaclear. Is it just as easy to snake the
C02 hose up the intake of an Eheim filter? Apparently (taken from the Krib
on Aquaclear filter discussions) the Eheim also pumps much less water per
hour. What about speed of filtering etc.?

Taken from the Krib (even though the models I'd get would be different):

Media Rated
Volume Hourly
Flow
Ehiem 2211 1,000 ml 79gal
AquaClear 1,368 ml 400gal

Thanx for any opinions!

As long as your are not concerned with loss of co2 from the aquaclear, I
would go with it.
