Question Canister Filter Recommendation For a 50 gallon tank

Hi,
I'm going to start my setup for my 50 gallon tank for my two axolotls, Dim and Sum, currently 6 months old 5" long.
Do anyone for any recommendations on a canister filter? I'm thinking about the Eheim 2215. For regular fish it will be sufficient but I'm wondering if it will be big enough for the amount of waste the two will create. I don't to go too large of a filter that it will make the tank a whirlpool as well.
Thanks for your input!

Default Re: Canister Filter Recommendation For a 50 gallon tank

Hello! I haven't done my research on Eheims, but that one looks like a good size, except for a 50 gallon, that might be a little 'old' - gut feelings. I'm more so a Fluval fanboy so I would recommend the Fluval 306 (some places go on sale for $120 or so so it should be of similar size - freakishly quiet. I use the 306 on my 37 gal cichlid tank. The easy stop lever is a killer feature, so good on the 306.
